Simplicity 3786

I’ve had this pattern in my stash for a couple of years, intending to make the tunic version in some nice silk voile.  My inspiration came from more fitted versions I saw on the Australian blog for Tessuti Fabrics. 

This is the short sleeve version, which I shortened to a blouse length (about 3″ shorter than the short tunic).  I also put two darts in the back to make it fitted and took in the sides.  The front has a v-neck, front seams and pintucks.

Not sure if the retro-print and retroish necklace is too too much?
