Hopefully the stripes are sufficiently narrow for me not to look like a walking deckchair but I thought the white and yellow looked really summery - should the weather ever turn summery again.
Being quite small, OK short, I often have trouble buying clothes with waists, darts, bustlines, necklines being in the wrong place or sleeves too long. The advantage of making your own is that you can tailor to suit your own needs. That's what I did here. The original pattern used elastic at the back and I didn't think that would be a flattering option so opted instead to add some darts and a buckle detail.
With a bit of effort I now have an original tunic that fits and was very affordable. I knew that 'O' level needlework would come in handy one day. I may make another without sleeves or in blue linen to match some trousers, OK I won't get carried away.
