Even a beginner stitcher can whip up
this folk-inspired tunic in just a day!

The simplest shapes are often the best; learn how to sew this dreamy tunic, and customize it to make it your own. You can add pockets, contrast piecing, embroidery or other details to suit your fancy.

Best of all? This classic style is ripe for embellishment, so if you are inclined to print or embroider on textiles, you can use your skills to embellish, or incorporate a piece you have already printed or stitched on.

Cal will bring the pattern and guidance, you bring your ideas!

SKILLS: You will need at least beginner-level sewing skills (i.e. you’ve used a sewing machine and sewn a simple project or two); more advanced seamsters are welcome and can tackle more challenging techniques.
