Summer Tunic...

I've started Vogue 1345 a nice lightweight summer tunic that should be a fun sew.  It's a Sandra Betzina pattern and the description says loose fitting, pullover shirt has collar, front and back pleated into lined yokes with sleeve variations and a narrow hem. 

I'm going to make a high-bred of view A & B.  I'll start off with view B; I won't do the organza overlays but I'll use piping (probably baby piping since I like the look) and I'll use the view B sleeve but slimmed down a bit.  I don't care for bell sleeves.  And I may just take an inch or so out of the length too.  We'll see.  The finished length for my size is 31.5 inches.  I typically like things around 27-29 inches for my height so I'll probably be lopping off a few inches.

This tunic is pretty long.  I'm betting you could add a few inches (well okay maybe 12 or so) and get a nice looking dress too. LOL.  I usually don't have to take length away.

My fabric is a blue & white jacquard stripe; it's probably polyester and is from Hancock's.

Right now I'm thinking of lime green or a darker red piping to set it off but that could change.  I'll see how it looks with a mock up.

That's all I have for today!
