Women’s Breezy Tunic {Pattern & Tutorial}…

There is something so quintessential about the tunic in Summer, they are perfect for Summer evenings, to cover up a bit from the Sun, or even to carry you into the cooler temperatures of Autumn. But the reason I love them? They are not only practical, but stylish as well.

And did I mention comfortable? Yeah…that too!


But it get’s better, because they are actually really easy to sew as well!

 Made with a fabulous linen I found during my NYC Fabric District Shopping Spree, we called it the Rorschach Fabric. Why? Because I immediately saw Yoda in the fabric, where someone else saw Lucille Ball. Either way, after a Yoda spotting I had to have it!

Come on…tell me you don’t see him sitting right there!  It was the very first thing I spotted when I picked up the fabric!!!  

BTW – Did you know there is a website called the Yoda Speak Generator?! 

Easy, to make the shirt is.

To make the Breezy Tunic, you will first need the pattern found HERE (Women’s Size Medium/Large):

Once you have printed and cut your pattern pieces, simply…













And there you have it. A perfectly easy breezy Tunic to help carry you from Summer into Fall!!!


I couldn’t help having some fun with Ben during the photo shoot. He was my focal point in almost all of the photos. After trying to take numerous photos of myself staring out into space, I found that if I put Ben on the ground – it was suddenly much easier to take the photo.


Look at him?! How cute is my little stinker?!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    Ooh, I love it! Definitely looks comfortable and that fabric is awesome!! Don’t know if I see Yoda though . . . maaaybe his hand on a cane? Haha, sorry girl! Love the top though :)

    Its true, I can’t download it unless I pay 9$ to scribd for a day’s membership. I would love to try your pattern that you so kindly provided, and would be willing to pay you for it to you, but not to scirbd :/

    I truly appreciate that Lia. When I used scribd, the pattern was free. Since then they have changed their business model – and this does not benefit me in any way financially. I appreciate your kind words!

    I downloaded your pattern and was excited to start. I am a self taught sewer, and haven’t made many garments (I do a lot of quilting). I made a practice pattern and garment… It did not fit, so I taught myself how to grade a pattern. Several days later, I had a pattern and material and began sewing. The tunic went together easily. I modified the sleeves and length to suit my needs. It has come out so well. I am going to keep my altered pattern and make a few more. Can’t beat it for the ease, value, comfort, and style. Thank you for sharing the pattern. By proxy, you made me a better sewer!!!
