O Tunic From Fabric By Fabric One Yard Wonders

15 Jan

Part of my Christmas presents were some sewing books that I’ve been eyeing up. One of them was Fabric-by-Fabric One-Yard Wonders and I was so excited when I thumbed through it because one of the project was the O Tunic.  The shape of this tunic is the same shape as some of my most favorite dresses that the girls own.

For my first go round with the pattern I followed it to a T, except that I cut the neck down a little in the back because I’m not sure how I feel about the slit being in the front. The only hitch in wearing it backwards is that the pattern has shoulder darts in the back.

I’m investigating how to remove them without messing up the lines of the shirt.


Here’s the front button closure

And here’s Lelia wearing it the proper way

And here it is backwards, she was being shy.


It was an easy pattern to follow and a great excuse to use my Filigree Deco Plants in Blush by Pat Bravo.  I really love the final product and can already picture adding length to turn it into a dress and make flutter sleeves or cap sleeves instead of long sleeves.  Or maybe going sleeveless to recreate this little number I found on Pinterest the other day.


So anyone out there know how to take shoulder darts out of a pattern?
