Down to Business

Now let’s get down to the inspiration behind this blog.  The stuff I see in the stores-I can sew that!  So take a gander at this beaut from Saks today;

I have the perfect pattern for this!  Say hello to Simplicity 2584:

So how can we make the fabulous tunic seen above?  Pretty easily, actually.

  • I can tell you from experience that the top (not dress) is long, and can easily be made longer.  Just use the top pattern for the bodice, and the dress’ 3/4 bunched sleeves.
  • You can restyle the decorative yoke to have straight sides.  The main part of the shirt wouldn’t have to be restyled at all.

I bet the trickiest part would be to find such great printed fabric.
