I have to agree this is the only tunic pattern youll ever need. The pattern comes in different lengths to wear as a tunic top, dress or long tunic-style dress. The tunic top pattern has been given the makeover to adapt to your style choose boho or glamorous. The pattern has interchangeable sleeve, neck plackets and collars. There are expert tips to guide you and a gallery to inspire you. This is the best of ready-to-wear one pattern- lots of options. Tunics are so comfortable to wear, but when I am shopping, I find them in polyester or silk, and the latter are expensive. Besides I like to make my own and with this book, I can get the fit right, choose my own fabric and change the look. Youll find Elements of The Tunic; Putting It All Together and Sewing Tutorials in this book. Excellent photos show you the options, fabrics, embellishments and styles that are possible. There are some fantastic examples including using lace. At a glance, you will see pattern and fabric requirements. Measurements are given in yards and metres. I love the detailed instructions with easy-to-follow photos. This book could be used by the beginner upwards. Pattern pieces are included. Highly recommended.
