Tunic Dress

Mc Crae, Australia






I used the Burda free download Tunic Dress Pattern. It is a great pattern, very easy to follow. I changed the original by adding buttons at the back, the cotton trim around the sleeves and the waist tie and I also lined the dress. I have already used the pattern to make a top and I am looking forward to using it again, there are so many possibilities with this pattern.

Material Notes

Cotton, polyester lining




Garment Type


Beautiful fabric from Tessuti

    Stunning. I just downloaded the pattern yesterday although I didnt really see the potential in it, but it will probably be my next project. I think the fabric makes it so great.

    Wow! Looks amazing – love what you’ve done with it especially the fabrics/contrasts. I’ve been meaning to finish mine off for ages – must get down to it.

    Lovely! I have been wanting to make this for a while… I think I have to abandon my alterations pile and give this dress a go!

    It turned out beautiful. Love the black trims.

    I’m looking for a dress pattern that would be (relatively) easy to make, since I’m not very skillful and patient. Maybe this one?
