I’m working my way through 9 yards of this fabric! More on that later – but this is a wonderful and easy variation of the tunic top included in V9275.
I stripped it down to essentials (no curved hem or collar cord), and added 40″ to the length, marked from the waistline. For reference, I’m 5’7″, and 57″ from shoulder to the floor. And I sewed the size XS – this is a very roomy top. But the sizing really extends its possibilities across many sizes and shapes.
It’s hard to see details on black fabric, so Emile is modeling the kaftan to show the inside:
I love the cowl – it’s just about perfect in this cotton/lycra jersey.
The sleeves are deep enough to be very comfortable, and long enough not to allow inside peeks.
This is one of my favorite projects this year!
The fabric. I mistakenly ordered two fabric kits from Fabric Mart, instead of one. For $8 each. The kit included 4.5 yards of jersey and the Christine Jonson #526 wrap dress. I’m actually glad I did it, this print is so appealing.
And it will show up again soon, in an Itch to Stitch Paro Cardigan!
And I’m off to work on the cardi. Bye for now – Coco
