Description

When I was in England over the summer, I picked up the July BurdaStyle and decided immediately to try this tunic top out. However, when I started cutting my pieces, I changed my mind and decided to change some aspects.

I omitted the sleeves, and now wear it in cooler weather with a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath. I also lengthened it slightly, for a more dress-like feel. It’s really just a simple tunic dress, but I get a lot of wear out of it.

Material Notes

The main fabric is was off the sale wall ($2/metre) at Fabricville and is some sort of corduroy imitation. To make it a bit more special, I cut the back yoke fabric out of medium weight Irish linen in the most gorgeous shade of turquoise, which I purchased at Fabrics Galore at Clapham Junction in London.
