Thanks for the info, I'm just getting ready to cut this pattern and will add to the length per your comments.

I love the colors you picked out for your tunic, very striking. Also like your cat--he looks like mine except for the gray!

Love the tunic--it's so striking. The colors are fantastic and the inset on the cuffs is a really outstanding touch.

chicago: Thanks for the comments. The black top was self-drafted from instructions in a book called "Techniques for Casual Clothes" by Taunton Press. I reviewed it earlier this month. (Review No. 337) Yes, Beau is my everything buddy. He follows me around like a dog. However, in the picture he's less interested in my sewing than in the fact that he's lying under a window in the sun. :-)

Love your tunic. Great choice of fabric. As I was looking at the pictures of your tunic I noticed your Black Circle Top. That is beautiful. Could you please tell me what pattern you used for this top? Great job! Beau must be your sewing buddy. So cute!!

Love the Fassett fabric! (He's always been a fav of mine.) That said - I think you did a beautiful job tempering the fabric - the wild colors and patterns can be a bit much on a broad scale. Enjoy wearing such a unique top.

OP Gal, your tunic turned out really lovely. I've seen tunics from casual to dressy, so your choice of fabrics and trims could put this pattern to work for you.

This special combination of fabrics really adds to this very cute tunic.

Your choice of contrasting fabric and their use makes this tunic look very special. Very nice job, and the time you put into it shows!
