Sew Me Something: Busy Fuchsia Batik Tunic Dress - Butterick B5415
|Front - Blue and brown flowers|
|Zipless Back - Purple and pink flowers|
|Pockets are always handy|
In my hasty foolishness to make this tunic dress using 2 pieces of fuchsia pink batik gifted to me by Kathleen, I did not realise that the floral prints were of different colour. Would have preferred the purple flowers to be on the front. Oh well; one cannot uncut fabric.
The sleeve caps were strangely wide, even after ease-stitching. So, gathered sleeves, they became. I also hiked up the bottom hem a la tunic style. Having it at the knees with long sleeves just made it old and weird. I could throw on a pair of tights or trousers if the occasion needed a more conservative dress code.
So? What do you think?
