Our Tunic with Gathered Shoulders is the perfect summer top, both breezy and beautiful. It’s also fun and easy to make, just what you want out of summer sewing!
Originally in Handkerchief Linen, this summer we made a bright, fresh version in our lovely Watercolor Linen. Woven with one color as the warp and another as the weft, Watercolor Linen is a luminous, almost glowing fabric. Special indeed!
A simple, straightforward garment like our Tunic with Gathered Shoulders is a great place to show off the beauty of Watercolor Linen. So, go ahead and give it a try, summer sewing awaits!
