This cute, comfortable, loose-fitting pull-on tunic works great with leggings and boots or with skinny jeans and ballet flats. It’s perfect for looking pulled together on a relaxed day, without compromising style for comfort. The impressive tailored details, which are surprisingly easy to sew, include kimono sleeves (which means no sleeves to set-in), a notched collar, self-facing, and a fun high-low hem for a little extra coverage in the back.

    Just what I had in mind
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 10/28/2016
    I've sewn all my life with patterns from all the readily available pattern companies. I was so thrilled to find you and this pattern. It's a great piece, well thought out and designed with easy to follow instructions. I love it! It was just what I had in mind for a new top and I was happy to find you as a new source for patterns.

    Make a Muslin
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 08/21/2016
    I'm 5' 4" with a 46" bust line. I found the fba instructions great but I forgot to lengthen the back pieces to match the front. The tunic was almost dress length on me so I shortened it by about 5". I really liked the top as the sleeves were great, the collar was great, all the finishings were great. I just wasn't thrilled with the bottom as on me it made me look pregnant. I think for me, I would have to modify the bottom with fewer gathers to make it more slimming looking, there's plenty of material to play with how it fits. I'm quite more curvy that the model and this tunic didn't drape on me in the same way. I will just have to play with it more to get it to look like I'm not pregnant, although if I was this would be extremely stylish.

    Make a muslin!
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/02/2016
    After my success with the "Bistro Dress" I chose to make a wearable muslin with modest success. The directions are great and the finishes look beautiful. I did the full bust adjustment from the recommended size. The depth from the shoulder to the fullest part of the bust was far too short for me. While it is wearable and I've had many compliments, I can feel that the fit isn't quite right. Next try I'll fix the shoulder depth and add several inches to the bottom of the bodice pieces. I'm just wishing I had done a muslin first and I certainly know better.

    Dreamy
    Reviewed by on 02/05/2016
    I made this tunic in a drapey linen-rayon blend, and it's beautiful. The back could hang a little better---that is, an even drapier fabric would be a good choice. I wouldn't try to make this in a crisp fabric, even something very lightweight.

    The pattern went together like a dream. I'm a size 4 or 6 in a commercial shirt, but I cut a size 2 based on the given measurements. I could've even made a size 0---I'm very small busted, and there's plenty of room in the tunic.

    Bubbling over instead of Bursting Out.....
    Reviewed by on 11/12/2014
    Buy this pattern for the FBA (full bust adjustment) alone. I blogged it here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/fba-all-way.html I have have just sewn this gorgeous shirt with a DD FBA and it is stunning. The Empire line fits neatly just under my bust and is so slimming (which is pretty amazing considering I am 12 weeks post baby #6. The gathered skirt skims over my lumpy bits and the high/low hemline is super groovy. Best of all, I can feed in it! I had made one previously in a wool/modal which 'grew' and I tend to wear that as a casual top. My latest is straight to the top of my girlie lunch outfit list. Love it, L O V E it. It is up there with my Portfolio on the must have pattern set.

    Late Lunch Tunic
    Reviewed by on 10/23/2013
    This is a must buy for women with a larger bust. It's almost impossible to find a tunic at a store with these design elements that will fit properly. The full bust adjustment instructions are fantastic. I've never done an FBA, but it made perfect sense. Add some length to the pieces as well. It takes a bit of tweaking, but you can do it!
