Butterick 5646, My friends birthday present :-)

My friend turned 50 on July 3. (Two days before my birthday) 🙂 I decided that “she has everything” and that my gift to her would be a “home-made one”. First I mad a brown version of this tunic. She liked it so much I just had to make her an other couple in different colors. Here she is 🙂

Then there is a greenish/turquoise one

This pattern calls for fabric a little heavier than this, but I prefer it with “sheer fabrics”. Here I have used a tissue weight cotton. Very nice for people who tend to feel hot 🙂

    Oh, I’m so glad you did this! Ive been debating this pattern and love seeing it on a real person- nicely done.

  2. sewingforfun says:

    Yes I really recomend it. As you see I used it for my youngest daughter also (preveous post, I think a couple of posts ago). Right now I am finnishing up a version for my oldest daughter and I also have made one for my sister….. 🙂 I think it is very falttering. But as you see, I prefer the thinner fabrics. 🙂 Good luck
