I made the Schoolhouse Tunic by Sew Liberated for my Quilt Market adventure in Portland. The lightweight fabric selected from my stash is similar to a tana lawn in weight. We just received a new Liberty Lawn which is very similar to the one I used.
To create a bit more room for the bust, I added darts and lengthened the bodice an inch in the front and back.
I’m not sure if you can really see in the photo but I moved the pleat on the front of the skirt, out toward the side seam, 1 inch on each side. By moving the pleat I created a flatter tummy section.
The facing on the bodice and cuff is Denyse Schmidt’s Greenfield Hill collection in voile. The sleeves were lengthened 3 inches. I followed Becky’s lead lining the cuff. See Becky’s SchoolHouse Tunic here. The tunic was perfect for Quilt Market, lightweight, comfortable and stylish. I can tell this will be my go to top for the summer.
Here are a few Schoolhouse Tunic tutorials for you. If you know of any others please post in the comments.
