New pattern - Piper BoHo Tunic from Wardrobe By Me

Well technically this pattern isn't new, it's a refresh of one of Christina's older patterns - so let's just say, it's as good as new! Here is my Piper BoHo Tunic:

If you are after a versatile top pattern that will work across all seasons - this is a very safe bet! With three length options, three neckline options and three sleeve options - that's already a potential of 27 different tops! And then if you throw different fabric weights into the mix, the possibilities are endless!!

I already loved the look of the original Piper Tunic, and Christina wanted to update the pattern to bring it in line with the newer style of her other Wardrobe By Me patterns - I was very excited to help test out the new instructions and sew up my own version.

I chose to sew a tunic length version with long sleeves (with tabs) and shirring at the neckline and I'm really pleased with how it turned out :)
Based on my measurements I sewed a size 10, and the fit came out great first time.

Fabrics with good drape will work best for this pattern, as they will hang nicely - rayon or viscose would be perfect. If you used a stiffer fabric, the resulting top would look a bit more boxy. You could also use jersey - but it would be worth going down a size if you do.

If you like the pattern and fancy trying it out - grab it quickly while it's on sale! You can get the pattern HERE, and I'd love to hear what options you would sew for your top?
