Vogue 8731

This youthful-looking A-line pullover tunic is easy to make in one afternoon. Four distinctive horizontal tucks, sewn at center front, give further shape to the close-fitting bustline. Sleeve choices include sleeveless, three-quarter, or full-length. The set-in sleeves are narrow, and the armscye sits close to the body, high under the arm. For unimpeded movement, it is important to select two-way stretch knits. Premade single-fold bias tape is used to finish the wide neckline, which sits approximately 2 inches below the collarbone. If a coordinating color is unavailable, our tester recommends using a self-fabric bias band.

(Sized Misses’ XS-XL [4-22] for busts 29.5-44 in.)

Style Tip: This is a great look to pair with skinny jeans or leggings.
