Tunic/ mini dress pattern

Posted on


I like to create non-corset patterns on occasion - they never sell in my Etsy shop (millions of patterns out there!) but there are a few 'fallow' months per year in my Patreon offer as I publish a pattern every 6 weeks  - I don't like the idea of patrons not receiving anything so like to issue some different things; articles, hints and tips, and patterns like this tunic top. It is based on the Worth bodice method whereby the bust dart is drafted wide to force the front side panel on the bias - it allows the fabric to skim the hips utilising the slight bias stretch for added flow.


As usual I thought it might be a quick design/grading exercise, but it never is!! The listing can be found here;
