Second StyleArc Michelle Tunic

This is the second Michelle Tunic I made. I really like this fabric and I did make a change in the neckline.

BTW I am wearing an apricot cami on underneath!!

I love the "flowing" feel of the sleeves.



My first tunic (in the last post) had a v-neck - but I found it difficult to do the bias strip "facing" - don't know what else to call it.

This one I changed to a kind of key hole - I think - I don't know what else to call it.
You can't see it too well in the photos but it is shaped like this. Much easier for me to do than a V.

Next up is a non StyleArc pattern (I can hear the screams from here!!!)



I will be using a poly chiffon with a border.


Then after that - back to my StyleArc addiction.

  14. Looking good B! For the v-neck, I like to use Jalie's instructions: http://www.jalie.com/product_printing_guide/2805.pdf. It's step 4 of view C. While I've not tried it on a woven, it works great for knits.

  16. Oh, oh! Border print chiffon! Just one more reason we are separated at birth- I'm wearing a peach cami under a made top right now too- got to love my sheers!

  17. Congratulations, you have managed a sheer fabric so well. Have to confess I avoid sheers, so fiddly to cut and sew.
