Hello Guys. This DIY tunic was made using this super easy digital pattern from the Beaute Jadore collection. This was my very first time using a digital pattern. I normally would steer away from digital patterns, because of fear and my ignorance in reference to how simple these patterns really are. Lets just say, I will purchasing many more from this point forth. When I came across Beaute Jadore wearing this tunic on my instagram feed, I quickly purchased it and got busy working on it.
I like the fact that this tunic is not complicated to wear, it’s simple, stylish, classy, and I like how the gathered side that shows off a little skin gives it a little sassiness. Again, I say that this pattern was simple because it was only 4 pieces and with a back zipper….not to complicated right, however the pattern suggest that you can use silk as one of the fabric option, but after using polyester which is close to silk, I would have to disagree. With this pattern I would strictly suggest using stretch material and I say this because once you gather the side and if you’re using any other fabric than something stretchy, it will cause the back of the tunic to twist, which is not cute and frustrating. NOTE: again, I strongly suggest using ONLY stretch material if you want the back of the tunic and centered zipper to stay centered once the side is gathered. Well while that was a major issues and disappointment for me, overall I like the top and think its really cute and funky.
Be Blessed. I hope you all like this look and enjoyed this post.
