    Thank you for all the tips tricks and advice in this sew along! I posted my second Tunic, and I was able to make an even better fitting version with all of your help!

    I finally got my tunic finished and photographed for the link party/giveaway. I am very happy with how it came out overall. It’s super comfortable and pretty. I will definitely make this tunic again (but next the dress version). Thanks for the tips and photos!

    I’m just getting started and perking along….I did manage to cut out the front part all wrong, but I just followed the directions backwards. I think it turned out OK even if it isn’t what was designed.

    Now I’m at the point where I’m prepping the collar and attaching it. So excited to be doing this.

    I’m slow, which is why I’m where I am in the Sew-Along ( naturally it’s finished before I even start), but I’m having fun and learning a ton while I work along.

    Thanks for all the tips because I’m sure I’ll need them.

    Me too. I tried re-saving the file into a size that fit within the parameters, but it still didn’t post.

    Hi Marsha

    The beauty of these sewalongs is that even when they nave finished, you can still sew along.

    I’m sorry you had trouble posting a photo. Sometimes like you say the file is too big to be loaded. Do you have a flickr account? Maybe we could see your photo in the group?

    Thanks for the help. I found the group and uploaded my tunic in progress. I’m at the point where I’m considering how to shorten the sleeves (because I’m so short) and then I’ll be ready to finish it up.
    More to come.

    I would measure your arm from shoulder point to the widest part of your upper arm and then measure to the pattern to see if this corresponds and then do the same from the widest part down to the elbow and then again from elbow to wrist. This will give you a good indication of where you are shorter on your arm and where you need to shorten the pattern to fit you. I know there should be a lengthen shorten line but this is a standard thing that most patterns have (unfortunately not everyone includes them) and it is only a guide as to where to alter. However, it may not be the best spot for your arm.

    I hope you find this helpful. I am the opposite with long everything so I have to lengthen and I use this method to find the best spot for my body.
