Sewing Club Sew-A-Long Tunic

Added Oct 27, 2009

New York, New Yo...






I made this white tunic as part of a sew-a-long with the Brooklyn Burda Sewing Club. Thick material makes it great to wear under a suit jacket. I just peel the blazer off at the end of the day, and can head all over town, cool and comfortable. We used Cynthia Rowley for Simplicity 2584.

Material Notes

White cotton blend




Garment Type
Business, Classic

    Good job! It’s very cute! Could yoy explain me how you made the front? The opening and the pattern around the opening? Thanks :)

      Before you sew the pieces together, you cut a slit down the center of the front and the center of the yoke. Then sew them together, with right sides facing each other.

      Thanks for this first advice :) and know I wonder how you sewed what seems to be a sort of little string around the front, which gives the idea of “thickness”. It’s very interesting!

    Your top is beautiful, versatile and well made!! Was the front detail (looks like a facing turned to the outside) difficult to do?

      It wasn’t difficult! I’d never done anything with a yoke before, and was really proud (of myself AND whoever wrote the directions!) when I saw how well it came out! I’d recommend it if you want to try something like it for the first time. (or 2nd…or 3rd…etc)
