I made this tunic during the first couple of weeks in July. The details of this shirt made it the most challenging sewing project I’ve completed so far. This was my first project with buttonholes — it has nine of them! The drawstring was a nightmare to turn right-side-out, despite the clever method I attempted to use. The front-side seams were challenging as well because of the differing curves of the two pieces. Overall, it was a challenging and fulfilling project. This is now one of my favorite shirts in my closet! The pattern I used is Simplicity 2365, option D.
Cotton fabric, light-weight fusible interfacing, seven 5/8" buttons
