Japanese tunic



Here's one of those other tops I had started a few weeks ago. I've been wanting to try out this pattern ever since I saw it on Burda 03/07 (it's pattern nr 103 B). It's actually sort of a tunic, and I immediately liked the contrast effect of the bands on the neckline and waist.

The fabric is one of my favorites, it came from Barcelona's Nunoya and I knew I had to make something special I could wear with it.

Adjustments I had to make: added another zipper on the side (or it would be very hard to make it pass through my shoulders) and closed the folds on the front, sewing them together. It came out so well I'll probably make it again ... after all, that's why I must buy more japanese fabrics, right ?

Gorgeous! And, yes, I would say that pattern warrants the purchase of more Japanese fabric ;)

É lindo, Tânia!!! =)

Queria ainda desejar-te umas óptimas férias e dizer que ADOREI as comprinhas que te fiz. É tudo tão perfitinho e delicado...
Acho que vou ter que arranjar um suplemento ao meu orçamento familiar para poder ter estes miminhos...

Bj e obrigada por tudo!

WOW, gorgeous!
And I totally agree about that fabric. It was and is one of my favourites, have it since three years and never used it because it should be made into something special... many fabrics I own for such a long time I don't like any more, this one I never get tired of.
Have a nice vacation!

I have to agree you need to buy more japanese fabric so you can make yourself another gorgeous top just like that one. It turned out perfectly.
