How about a visit to New York, London, Paris or Rome? All you have to do is wear this tunic and you’re there. I didn’t even have to leave my back yard.
The fabric is a cotton jersey knit and it’s super cool and comfortable. You can find it here. I wore this outfit to work and everybody was asking “where did you find that top?” I swear I get so much pleasure from that question. It makes me all happy and warm inside.
For the tunic I used Simplicity 8059 View A. You can find it here. I’ve been obsessed with high – low tops and dresses for the past 2 seasons. I decided to switch things up a bit and go asymmetrical and I think I like it.
This was a very easy project. Just sew , serge and use the twin needle for the double stitch and you’re done. I threw on a silver necklace just to create a bit of interest. You don’t need to do much – I wanted to add a little bling.
I really like the banded neckline detail. I think it takes this top up a notch.
The fabric is very forgiving and it has great recovery. In other words, it snaps back and doesn’t stretch out.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you give this pattern and fabric a try. I promise you will love it. See you soon…..
