Silk_tunic_large

Description

Just a tunic, shaped a bit like the Anda pattern. Its made from lovely silk from Ebay and black acetate lining. I cut 4 pieces, 2 front, 2 back in the rough shape of a large t-shirt so it didn’t need darts or zips or anything, then attached the silk to the lining creating only 2 pieces if that makes sense! Hand sewn the hem and neckline so the stitches didn’t show to the outside.

After the last disaster it was nice to make something that finally worked (after a lot of messing with the silk-agggh)

    I agree – the fabric is gorgeous! Also like the shape; is it more or less straight across the shoulders? I’m quite intrigued by the cut-on shoulders I keep seeing (like the Port Elizabeth top). Really really nice – let’s hope we have some nice weather in the UK so you can wear it!

      Hey thanks :-) The shoulders are ‘normal’ sloped kind but extended right out, the arm hole part is then curved just slightly to meet the bodice. I think the anda pattern would probably show this shape the best if there is a technical drawing for it.
