Any woven top, I used a girl's XL chambray tunic.
Peasant Tunic Pattern - I used the free Peasant Dress Pattern by Once Upon a Sewing Machine
1. Draw on the hem allowance lines. (You cannot see mine because I just folded the pattern on the line, so you could see what I was doing.)
2. Fold the shirt along the center front. Line up the center front of the pattern with the fold. Line up the hem with the hem allowance line.
3. Do the same on the back.
4. I wanted to use the least amount of pink lace as possible so I fold the sleeve along the pink lace. I also wanted to keep the button placket detail. I lined up the pattern fold with the fold opposite the lace. Line up the hem with the drawn hemline.
5. Assemble the pattern as directed by the pattern instructions.
You can see the pink lace just peeking out on the back. Even it it originally was a mistake, it does give it a nice feminine touch! I do love chambray and this adorable tunic. It'll also be one to grow into. Do you see that Henry's striped shirt and Claire's bloomers match? I can't wait to share what I've been working on for so long!
