The Rockabilly Tunic

I have been sewing again. I posted about my sewing projects here and although it has taken me longer to complete them then I thought it would, I am making progress.

This is the completed top (project # 2 from this list)... I am calling it the Rockabilly Tunic


It is a tunic length top with a gathered/ruched yoke and a ruffle at the neckline. I added the grograin belt to make it less sack-like. The pattern called for a belt made out of the same fabric as the top, but I thought that was too matchy-matchy.

Here is a close up on the gathered yoke and ruffle:


I love this tattoo flash fabric from Alexander Henry... it makes me feel like I am on the set of Cry-Baby!
