New Look 6086 tunic, cotton lawn
Another top that was meant for the summer, finally completed at the end of October. Sigh. This is also another one of the patterns I snagged at the charity shop- 2 neckline option, 3 sleeve options, and a camisole top included- pretty good value.
I made this up in an embroidered cotton lawn, straight size 18. Fabric was a bit tight, so I omitted facings and went for binding, as I was able to get quite a lot pieced from scraps. I should probably have done an FBA, but hey, it’s for summer, and I sometimes leave off the bra and just wear a camisole for decency, so it won’t matter…probably.
I like the sleeve slits and side slits, they add a little something to a very simple top. the neckline is a nice depth too. More of these for next year, for certain,maybe with a double layer front if the fabric’s this sheer, and with the FBA!
