Pattern: Simplicity 3786 (view A)
Size: S3786 comes in sizes 6 to 22 - I used size 6 for the bodice and waist and size 8 for the hip.
Fabric: Yellow embroidered cotton from Timmel Fabrics.
Comments: When I saw this fabric on the Timmel site, I knew I wanted to turn it into a tunic. I liked the simple lines of this pattern and the rest, as they say, is history.
Sometimes it's nice to have a roomy, unfitted tunic top in the wardrobe. I think we all have those days when we are feeling less than svelte and the thought of a tight top is enough to make a grown woman cry. This is my solution - a cute top, in a fresh colour that doesn't cling or bind. Worn over a pair of capris with a pair of kicky sandals and you have the perfect, comfortable outfit.
The pattern was well drafted and it went together easily enough. I like that although the style is simple, the lines of the top are a bit more interesting than just a plain "big shirt" style of tunic.
Conclusion: Although this top makes me look a bit rectangular, I don't care because it is comfortable and sometimes comfort wins out over vanity!
P.S. Thank you to all of you that took the time to leave words of congratulations on my last post. There sure a bunch of nice people out there in cyber space.
