If you haven’t had a chance yet to sew that Gallery Tunic or Dress that you’ve wanted to, here is your motivation to get one done! We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a Gallery Tunic + Dress sew-along next month from February 15 to February 19. And we hope you will join us!
This pattern was very well received when it was released last May. At that time Liesl also offered some great styling inspiration so be sure to check that out. Liesl will be back here next week with some fabric suggestions.
Relaxed-fit pull-on tunic or dress. The tunic features cuffed three-quarter-length sleeves and a one-piece collar. The dress includes in-seam pockets, button-cuff, full-length sleeves, and a band collar. Both versions include an inset front placket with a fun pleated detail, an inverted box pleat at back, and a curved shirttail hem that’s slightly longer in back. Effortless and feminine, this flattering classic-but-contemporary piece can take on many different looks depending on how you style it.

Five talented ladies have been gathered to form a panel. Are you ready to be amazed? Here they are!
