Another tunic based on the Port Elizabeth top, this time looser fitting to accommodate lining, skivvie and thermal underwear (it’s cold here atm!).
The fabric is a Gurli throw-rug bought new from IKEA for this project. It was a nightmare to sew because of the loose weave and the subsequent movement at every stage of cutting and sewing, however, i love the colour and (despite it being synthetic) the feel. lined in soft quilting cotton. Armholes and neckline stabilised with bias binding to limit fraying. All seams and hems were double-stitched (straight stitch) and then zig-zagged (all on a stitch length of 1) to limit fraying.
