I wear a lot of tunics or loose tops on leggings and jeans and I needed a piece to give my outfit a little structure -and prevent me from looking like a complete marshallow woman^^ Enters a French issue of Burda Easy sewing, I simply narrowed the shoulders because I wanted something very fitted, shortened the length and sleeves and chose the officer collar. The navy version is stretch cotton with Japanese yukata cotton facings and the wax version is, well, wax with self made facings and yellow bias.
