    I like your tunic very much: such eclectic combination of sporty sleeves, romantic ruffles and tie & dye print created a wonderful result, very nice work and it really suits and fits you well!

    Thanks for your comments.

    Mary, I used the Janome ruffler foot here’s the link showing what it looks like :,_Ultimate_Ruffler. It nakes lovely pkeats and gathers. Prior to making the ruffles, I overlocked the fabric strips with black embroidery thread to achieve a glossy edge effect.

    The fabric is made from cotton brocade which was dyed using the tie & dye method to get the pattern. It is a fairly common African fabric and sold in most African fabric shops i believe.
