M5768 Tunic-Complete


I used M5768 ViewB. The fabric is a lightweight crepe print I purchased from one of Joann's red tag clearance sales last year. It's a loose-fitting pullover tunic with front and back neck bands. There is an inverted pleat on the front below the neck band and the sleeves are slightly flared with sleeve bands and side slits. Started this project on Saturday evening and finished up Sunday night. I was thinking about adding something for the neck and sleeve bands just to add a little touch of contrast although the fabric is very vibrant. We'll see.
Here's a closeup of the sleeve band and the side slit. I have a very dark blue denim that would look great with this. The great thing about this tunic is I can wear it with even in the summer with white pants. Happy sewing!
