SewStylish Fall Fashion Challenge 2014

funnel neck tunic

Oct 13, 2014

I found the fabric for this tunic at the thrift store over the summer, it is two way stretch polyester.  The pattern is Simplicity 5359 from 1972, another thrift store find.  I used a heavier fusible interfacing in the collar than the pattern called for because I wanted to make sure it would stay up.  The pattern is intended to have a cuffed collar with a light interfacing and worn folded over.  I will wear it both ways I am sure.  The tunic has darts at the shoulders, bust and elbows with a slightly tapered sleeve.  I like the versaltility of being able to wear it belted or unbelted for a different look, with the collar up or down.  I am most pleased with how neatly my invisible zpper went in and the collar.  Overall I am pleased and will definitely be wearing this a lot this fall.
