We’ve mentioned that Jord’s wardrobe requirements in the Middleeast are, well, different from what she wears in the States.
So while Jord was Stateside last month, we did a little tunic sewing- tunics that are long, flowy and best of all, super simple to put together.
Want to make one too?
Cut out your pieces- 42” across at the top (52” for longer sleeves), 28” tall, 24” across the bottom and 14” up on the outer edges.
Leave an inch of margin around the edges if you are planning on French seams.
First, make a curved neckline on the front piece- 6” from the folded half, curve down slightly.
Pin with the wrong sides facing each other and sew along both shoulder seams (stop at the curved neckline) and along both of the sides.
Pinking shear the edges and turn inside out (yep, you read that right, inside out). Sew along all of those same seams with the right sides facing each other, encasing the raw edges in a french seam.
Hem the bottom edge and the sleeves. I used hem tape (tutorial here).
Finish the collar using storebought bias tape (I used this how-to).
Even without specific wardrobe requirements, this tunic is flowy and perfect for fall here (in fact, I made one for Jord and then another for myself!).
