Hey there, how are you? Today I'd like to tell you about my MOST FAVOURITEST TOP EVER -can you feel a little hint of enthusiasm^^? I love everything about this tunic (design C3 from this book): there are 4 pieces + facings which makes a grand total of 6 mostly rectangle-shaped pieces to trace, the instructions for making the pleats and sewing the garment are crystal-clear and the facings match the top's neckline perfectly. I think the result looks surprisingly sophisticated when it is in fact easy enough to make for a complete beginner.
The only slight change I can advise you to make if you don't want your tunic to be too wide is to reduce the width of both front and back pleats by 2 cm. Another thing, it's roomy but the bust and shoulders part is fitted so choose your usual size (in this book mine is L for a 35" bust and rather large shoulders). The fabric is grey/light khaki chambray -also avoid any stiff fabric if you make this top, it wouldn't look good with these big sleeves- I bought another piece in classic blue for a vintage project, I hope I can show you it soon :) Have a nice weekend folks, see you!
