If you recall, I made this pattern before in a dove gray linen. I made view A as a straight size 16 with no alterations. The description says loose-fitting. Hmmm, it's very over-sized. In my opinion, you should go down one size. This version, again of view A, is a straight size 14 with no alterations. It fits me very nicely. And again it's very easy for such a polished looking tunic. I'll probably make several more iterations. This one is in a slightly heavier bright pink linen from the Cloth Merchants. Here are a few shots of the embroidery I did on this version.
I have a huge collection of embroidery fonts (the results of 20 years of collecting). I picked an art deco one, took my initials and then rotated the design to create a square design. Here's more:
I embroidered a strip from the shoulder line all the way down to the hem. Using the new Ellisimo 4x12 border hoop made this a breeze! It turned out to be 3 hoopings.
Pretty cool, eh? LOL.
And finally the shirt itself. I really love this pattern. I have some deep pink stretch twill on the way here from Denver fabrics that should go beautifully with the tunic. Can't wait to see it.
