One Shoulder Blouse – Burdastyle 6/2010 #120A

I found a good use for this vintage fabric remnant, and this tunic was quite quick to make. The early seventies toweling-surface print fabric with slight crosswise stretch helped hug the frame, so the fit is good. In fact I didn’t even use any elastic in the neckline or hem, and I also made the hem slightly longer. I sort of tried to make the pattern match up at the seams, but the pattern is so groovy that its not very noticable. The toweling nap makes it good for warming up after a swim I guess, worn with a bandeau bikini, but it can also be worn as a top with shorts/pants or skirt (I can’t find my summer shorts at the moment lol!)
