striped tunic shirt

I’ve been seeing stripes everwhere and I really wanted to draft a tunic pattern next.

The neckline finish is again with yellow bias tape. I rolled the sleeves up because I’m into that look right now but of course it can be worn with the sleeves rolled down as well.

And the obligatory picture of me wearing it (somehow they always turn out awful and the colors are way off, I am so much better behind the camera than in front of it!!). Nevertheless, it fits me really well, yay 🙂

I added a little gathering in the back as well, to make it less plain:

The pattern is not yet perfect, I will be changing a couple of things for the next shirt. Sewn as always on my vintage treadle (I know, I keep repeating myself, but I really really do love my treadle!).

      Haha, do get on your machine! I’ve found that once you’ve started you can’t stop. Now that I work full time I am always soo looking forward to the weekend to sew 🙂
      What would you sew?

      Aw, don’t say that 😛 Maybe I’m too critical as a photographer but I can’t think of one photo of myself that I really like. Naw, I’m much better capturing other people 🙂
