Its been an age since I have got around to any selfish sewing, but I did make this little number this week, and I am quite pleased with the result. I bought the lovely fabric a couple of months ago with nothing in mind really, but then saw this tunic pattern which I thought would suit. My local shop was “Backstitch” just outside Cambridge UK .

I haven’t used Burda patterns very often and my first boo boo was to not cut the front out on the fold. School girl error I know! Am used to arrows and there are none on Burda! Luckily I had enough fabric as I always over estimate how much I need. From then on plain sailing, although the neck and front bands are sewn in a very odd way, but it worked.
I do recommend you use light and floaty fabric for this, as otherwise it would be sticky outy and look like maternity!
This is a new pattern from Burda, Burda 6633 here in UK anyhow, and is average sewing skill rating. There is a longer version with a collar included too, which I may try. I like the shaped hem and sleeve length especially, though I do have to wear a t shirt underneath as it does gape at the front, ooh er. Should have tried it on, not just relied on Vera my dress form!
