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?
