White Cheyenne Tunic

I made view B of the Cheyenne tunic by Hey June Patterns. I made a size S bust and graded out to a size M at the hips. I shortened the arms by 2 inches and I shortened the torso by 1 inch (I’m 5′ 1 1/2″). It seems like I probably could have shortened this another inch or two but I’m not sure how long tunics are supposed to be?

I got this white cotton voile fabric from Imagine Gnats. This is pretty much an exact copy of a version by Fleurine from the Sew MarieFleur blog that I saw a while ago and had been stuck in my head ever since. I love that you can see through it but that also makes it a lot harder to wear.

I love the beach-y vibes that this shirt gives off though I’m not sure how much I’ll be drawn to this top in the Wisconsin winter or fall. However, I definitely want to make a button up shirt version to wear this fall.

I also love the tabs to keep your sleeves rolled up. Generally you don’t really need them but I think it is a nice detail on this shirt. Also this is my second time making a button placket and it went much better than my first time on my archer popover. This may be my new go-to pattern for when I want to make a popover.
