Description

The Ellinor top is a great launching point for a tunic. Here, I omitted the center front neck slit and the empire waist elastic. Also, both the sleeves and the hem are shortened from the original pattern. I finished the neck and sleeve hem with bias binding, adding a pleat at each sleeve hem.

Material Notes

silk (crepe?) from Josephine’s Dry Goods in Portland, Oregon, USA
