These gorgeous, easy-breezy pieces are just right
for light-medium weight blouse and dress fabrics like
voile, crinkled gauze, Broderie Anglais, chambray,
lawn, crepe or linen. You can also use a fluid knit, like
a silk(y) jersey, linen, rayon, bamboo or viscose knit.
Relaxed-fit, pull-on dress and blouse have an A-line
silhouette controlled by released pintucks across the
front. Dress and blouse are gently gathered onto the
slit neckline; raglan sleeves give a relaxed look. The
3/4 length sleeves work with the hip length blouse
and the tunic-length dress. Mix your hem & sleeve
finishes...try a classically curved shirt-tail hem, add
a deep sleeve band or pick crisp horizontal pleats.
These wardrobe superstars love pretty trims like
pom-poms, tassels & piping, and they’re perfect
during hot weather...swing the blouse on over loose
pants, shorts or capris; try the tunic-dress worn over
slim cropped or full-length pants; or wear the tunic-dress
with nothing more elaborate than tanned bare legs,
a fresh pedicure and your favorite sandals.
For the tunic-dress, all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
will need around 3 1/2 yards/320 cm fabric.
For the blouse, all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
you will need around 2 3/4 yards/213cm fabric.
All sizes & versions will also need around 1/4 yard/23cm
interfacing; add as much applied trim and/or piping as you
wish, or leave these perfectly plain.
All fabric allowances are for 60” or 150cm wide fabrics.
