Popover Tunic

This pullover tunic was fast and easy. The stunning border print makes it special. It’s been washed twice, but still retains it’s crispness. It’s cool and comfortable.

The tunic has no darts or other shaping. It’s just a simple back and v neck front. The sleeves were borrowed from a pattern and modified to fit. The neck band and sleeve casings (yes, there’s elastic in the brown bands at the end of the sleeves) are brown bias tape. I used the same bias tape to topstitch a casing for elastic on the inside of the tunic. I positioned the casing low, so when I pull it up to make the top pouf out, the casing is still below my waist for a dropped waist look. The hem is the border print, so I just turned the selvage up twice, about 1/2″, then topstitched it with brown thread.

Yes, I am wearing it over brown shorts in the photos!
