This is another pattern repeat. I last sewed the Simple Tunic from the book Bold and Beautiful Easy Sew Clothes back in early 2014. I found that I wore it fairly regularly, especially once the weather got hot, so decided to sew another before our Queensland/NSW trip in September.
Once again I sewed the smallest size – which as you can see is still very roomy – in linen. This is an enjoyable garment to sew. Seams are topstitched after overlocking, and the hems and neck facing are topstitched in place as well.
There’s not much to say about it – it definitely is simple! If you are tall you might want to consider lengthening the top a little, as the front is shorter than the back and curves up quite high in the centre. As always, it just depends on what look you are after.
I have one of the jackets from the book cut out at the moment that I hope to sew over the summer break. More detail about the book is in my earlier blog post.
