How to Finish the Trendy Tuniccomments (6) August 9th, 2008
Ok, let's finish the tunic...I hope you enjoyed drafting your own tunic from a shirt pattern and using it to cut out the pieces for this hippy mod top. I really feel creative when restyling a garment into something new.
Start by sewing the center-back seam of the yoke. Draw a line with a wash-away marker where the pins had held in place. When you're done stitching, trim the excess fabric away. Leave a 1/2-inch seam allowance.
Check the yoke on your dressform to make sure that you sewed the center-back seam at the right angle. If it buckles or does not lie flat, adjust the angle of the seam. Then topstitch the seam allowance using a three-step zigzag.
After you make this project, show off your work to other members!
