This is a shortened version of the Burda E971 Tunic Dress pattern. I added the “bones” (as my sister calls them) to the shoulders to add length. I also added a belt for a bit more shape and had to put darts in the back of the yoke for a better fit.

Material Notes

cotton w/ embroidered stripe

    It somehow reminds me of azalea. I like the bones a lot, and the fabric as well.
