Summer Tunic/Dress – Love Sewing Magazine


For this dress, I modified the Summer tunic pattern by Sewgirl for Love Sewing magazine (issue 3). Based on the gorgeous designs in Japanese pattern books, this version is a simple design and made to fit and flatter every shape.

To give this dress a smarter and more dressy appearance, I omitted the lower sleeves and attached lace with a pretty scalloped edge. The keyhole at the neck and pockets were also omitted.


I used a floral print mid-weight viscose/rayon which has a lovely drape. As this pattern’s sizing is rather generous, I made a Small and took in the sides.

I will probably make this pattern again but as an actual tunic with pockets. I cannot resist the Japanese aesthetic as it is so appealing to me.

Is there a style/design that you cannot resist and turn to time and time again?
