Indian Tunic Top

Added Oct 26, 2008

Sydney, Australia






It’s a thigh long tunic top that is light enough to wear on hot days, but also protects against sun and unwanted stares. It has a drawstring in the back to give it a bit of shape. It’s meant to be a comfortable piece to hang out in, but I could imagine making a more dressy one from some more fancy material.
I borrowed an overlocker for the sleeve and neck seams and discovered that these things are really hard to use.

Material Notes

Thin cotton, it’s a bit shiny and crinkles easily, I have no idea what the official name is.





My friend bought one like this in India and I borrowed it for a holiday. I loved it so much that I wanted one for myself, so I copied it.

Credits go to my friend for buying it and lending it to me and to the person in India who made it ;)

    The material is most likely “crepe.” Also, is there a chance you might post the pattern for this? I think it’s wonderful. :)
