This is a little tunic top I made from the ever popular (and sadly out of print) Simplicity 3835. This pattern is wonderful. It is crazy tight in the arms, but otherwise well drafted and simply adorable. I made this top in the fall of 2010, and never got around to posting it, even though I even took pictures of it. But I’m getting caught up today, so here it is!
This is probably the thing I’ve worn most out of all the garments I’ve made, and it is definitely the item I miss most since growing out of pre-pregnancy clothes. But no matter, it will be mine again by the holidays! I made it out of a gorgeous wool windowpane plaid with beautiful fluidity and drape. It is very soft and comfortable to wear, not at all itchy. It was a splurge from the NY Cuts table at Mill End, but worth every penny. It’s view b, but I wasn’t wild about the round collar so I used the elastic neck casing from view c. I finished the seams Hong Kong style, which adds a couple hours of extra labor but looks fantastic.
I usually wear this tunic with skinny jeans, but it is adorable over tights and boots!
