Amy Butler Tunic

This months Sew magazine
came with a bonus pattern for a tunic top, I do like tunic tops and decided to make this one
Now the model in the picture must be a petite extra small size and I was under no illusion that is was going to look the same on me.
Also the pattern included a tie belt y opinion is if you have a lovely waist line then flaunt it with a belt but as I haven't I omitted the belt, I also omitted the fluffy corsage flower I am not a frilly fluffy person, plain Jane that's me.

The fabric is 100% cotton and the top is fully lined, the pattern on the fabric makes it look all creased but believe me it isn't, there is the option on the pattern to make it shorter like a crop top, but not for me, the longer the better covers a multitude of sins.
want to see it on

If I was to make it again, I would omit the buttons at the back and do the back yoke all in one as the neckline is fairly loose and I can put it on without undoing the buttons, also I don't think I would line it, and perhaps make it a bit longer.
that's the joys of dressmaking alter it to suit.
