I love this pattern by Simplicity. I have sewn the sleeveless tunic 3 times, and the simple purse once so far. Here, I made the tunic with short sleeves and I added a rectangle of fabric to create a cowl neck. It is a very different look from the other casual cotton tops. I used a beautiful silk charmeuse from Les Fabriques in Charlottesville, VA www.lesfabriquesinc.com . I hand rolled the hems.
