  1. Cutting: 2 - 30” x 31” (tunic front and back)
  2. 2 - 4” x 33” (ties)
    4 - 2” x 20” (interfacing)

  3. Making the armholes: Fold tunic front and back in half RST so long edges meet to find the center and mark on the wrong side of top edge.
  4. Lay the front on a flat surface wrong side up with the center mark at the top. Measure in 4-1/2” from each side and mark. Measure 9” down each side from the top edge and mark. Draw a diagonal line connecting the marks on each side and cut along the drawn lines. Fold and press 1/4” to the wrong side twice. Sew close to pressed edge to hem the armhole. Repeat for the back.

  5. Making the neckline: Leaving long thread tails on each end, sew a row of long gathering stitches 1/4” from the top edge and a second row 3/8” from the edge for both the front and back. Note: Do not backstitch.
  6. Making the ties: Fold ties in half wrong sides together so long edges meet and press fold firmly.
  7. Open out ties with wrong side up, place long edge of interfacing strip at fold with short ends matching. Following manufacturer’s instructions, fuse in place. Add a second interfacing piece to the end of the first overlapping ends by 1/4”. Trim excess interfacing even with tie end; fuse. Repeat for second tie.
  8. Fold ties in half RST so long edges meet, place them on a flat surface end to end with interfaced sides facing up. Mark the neckline center 4-1/2” from the end on each tie.

  9. Leaving ties in same position, mark 1-1/2” from the corner of the bottom edge, then measure and mark 6-1/2” from the 1-1/2” mark. Clip 1/4” into seam allowances at the 6-1/2”marks.

  10. Sew curved edges together; press seams open. Fold tie in half RST and sew, stopping stitches and backstitching at 6-1/2” neckline marks to leave an opening for turning. Clip corners diagonally and turn ends right side out. Press tie, pressing under the seam allowance on tie opening.

  11. With RST, match up center marks and edges of neckline with marks on ties, gathering neckline to fit; pin. Sew, turn under edge of tie and pin in place on neckline. Topstitch around the edges of the tie enclosing the neckline and closing the opening.

  12. With RST, baste the side seams. Try tunic on to check the fit. If alteration is needed, put tunic on inside out and pin to desired fit; baste accordingly. Sew side seams, trim seam allowances to 1/2” if needed and finish seams. Press seams open.
  13. Finishing: Press bottom edge 1/4” to the wrong side, then again 1” and sew close to edge to hem.
  14. Wear tunic with the ties in a bow or square knot.
