Very nice! Might I ask what the glitch in the instructions was? I have this book and should try something from it ... someday.

I have this book so it's nice to see this made up. It looks like a fun and wearble piece (with a more fitted bottom of course, as you mentioned).

Thank you for the nice comments, and apologies to Patti B for taking so long in answering her question. Maybe "glitch" is a harsh term I used. In the instructions, #10 details how to attach the cowl collar to the body by sewing the wrong sides together. That would put the seam on the outside (which would be presumable be hidden by the bias tape sewn over it). When I looked at the photo detail, the seam seemed to be inside. So here, you have to determine yourself how you will sew the cowl/tunic seam -- just make sure that the butonholes in the cowl show up outside. No big deal, but I did a lot of pinning and un-pinning. The other small thing that I changed what the topstitiching detailed in #9 -- I made the topstitching 3/4" rather than 1/2". Again, no big deal. I've already road tested this top and it is both stylish and comfortable. I think I will wear this a lot. I love this design's sweatshirt roots (and I never wear sewatshirts anymore). Patti B, do give this tunic a try.
