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.
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!
