Description

Here is my version of the tunic top from June issue of Burda magazine. I love this pattern, details are so cute and fit is great! I’ve changed it just a little bit, thought that it would be cute if the front yoke continues to the back.

I used french seams for the first time and I love the result, though the process of making it wasn’t really dreamy. In the middle of the work, just before adding the zipper, I thought that I made it to small and didn’t have any idea how to fix it – all seams was finished and there was no ease, but in the end it turned out that it was all just a false alarm in my tortured head. Think it was because the pattern is in petit sizes an I’m 1.77m, so from the start I wasn’t quite sure am I doing it right. Tho whole situation gave me a serious case of headache, I had to just leave it all and finish it the next day. Hence the project name :) Tricky things those french seams..

Material is light white cotton with tiny yellow dots, not sure how much this could be seen in the pictures.
Hope you like it :)
