Burda Style 9/2011 108 tunic


I finished this dress a while back when it was too cold to wear, the fabric is a light  weight bamboo knit. I was attracted to the pattern which is a tunic length top, I liked how simple it is but yet a little different. I had been wanting to make a simple knit dress that I could accessorize in many ways so I lengthened the pattern, I would have made it longer but didn't have enough fabric.

I know this is a very subdued color for me =) but I'm looking forward to playing with different color combinations. This morning I liked how this cardigan brought out purple undertones in the fabric.
Nothing really to add, as far as construction, I ignored the binding instructions for the neckline and just turned and stitched
