Description

The Drape Back Tunic is the simplest of patterns with the most stylish outcome.  It’s a one-piece pattern with one size only and very clear markings to alter the generous fit of this tunic.  Cut in a jersey I easily fit this little gem on my size 20 dummy in the workroom.  And at the same time I wear my own jersey tunics regularly with skinny jeans, leggings or a pencil skirt.  This PDF has One Size Only with a 1 Pair cut for the complete garment and some volume and length alteration instructions included in the pattern.  You’ll be able to moderate the amount of fullness in your garment according to your own taste.  You can checkout the Pattern Puzzle post about this design on the blog:

Available here as a PDF download to be printed as A0 at your local print shop and A4/letter for printing at home.  And for my U.S. followers this A0 format will fit in a 36″ plotter print.

Tunic features:

This drape back tunic is best cut in a light, drapey, one-way stretch knit fabric.  The seam allowances are generous at 1.25cm (½”) so there is enough fabric to finish the neckline and armholes.  The wider seam allowance will also be useful if you cut this tunic in woven fabrics (e.g. light weight cotton voile, light silks and some rayons).  It’s home and industry ready with a flexible fit that makes it so easy to wear. This product is for personal and home use only.  For education and commercial use please email me direct.

Where do I start:

The first order of business is to select your fabric for this elegant tunic.  I’d recommend soft drape knits for your first sample.  That could be either one or two-way stretch knits although the elastane found in two-way stretch is not needed in this design.  And I did have some success using a light cotton voile keeping in mind a petticoat would be needed.  And I’m just dying to try it out in a silk crepe de chine!

Remember I’m just an email away for any questions about our PDF downloadable patterns.  If you enjoy pattern making and fancy a challenge, have a look at the great pattern making posts on my blog, well-suited.

Enjoy. 🙂

The Drape Back Tunic or Dress length.  Choose your fabrics carefully!  Cotton voile will fit up to size 14 without any issues.  Cut in knit it can fit up to size 20!
