  1. TC Ferrito

    I made the tunic to wear on a trip. Simple to fit, simple to sew and looked fabulous. Since I knew what my TRJ alterations were already, I knew what size to pick. I needed no alterations beyond sleeve length. I love that the tunic version has the pointed sides but that they are no so dramatic as others. This is much more wearable- even to work- and I am planning more. If you tend to buy fabrics in the same color families, you will find plenty in your stash to mix together and “color block” the pattern. The sleeve style on this pattern makes this a really fast sew.

    I will have to say this was one of the most fun patterns I have made. The pieces all went together so nicely, and it fit. A double bonus. I am now attempting to color block it and make it longer. Sewing in the sleeve was so easy, it doesn’t make sense at first but it works great.

  3. Wendy Rice

    I did make it longer, thanks to Rae’s help. No problems and I love it about 4 inches longer. Also did a bit of color blocking.

  4. Kat Martinez

    Made the tunic during a class I took from Rae. FABULOUS experience! First shirt I’ve ever made, (and first three garments were leggings), and I am thrilled with the results. Rae knows a lot about fit and pattern adjustments, and is a patient and encouraging instructor.

    I love this top. So many cute variations. I’ve made 6 so far. It’s a fun pattern to play with. I have a forward,rounded shoulder. With a few adjustments on the body, the sleeve still slipped in easy. They gave great directions on the website for the adjustments.

      Thanks Fran! So glad you are having fun with it!
