Another simple tunic

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.

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.
