This tunic design is a combination of everything I desire in a tunic: ochre and/or ivory colors, covers the back hips and butt, boat neckline, fitted ¾ sleeves, tighter around the shoulders, not transparent, heavier in weight, and does not look like a maternity top. There are 2 layers of fabric for the bodice. This gives the top a clean neckline, smooth finish, beautiful (and heavier) drape.
Have you ever worn a tunic and felt like you were wearing a maternity top or oversized men’s shirt? Or perhaps there are tunics that make you look a bit frumpy when photographed in?
If so, my new tunic has a hidden stretch band, which makes for an extremely slimming and flattering fit!
The hidden stretch band is my unique design that gives the top different style options. When worn in the front, the band creates a beautiful fullness and drape in the front while making the back fitted. And when the band is worn in the back, the top is fitted in the front and loose in the back (like a cape). This is my take on the cape trend!
The fabric is a rayon/spandex material. It’s very stretchy with GREAT (stretch) recovery! Since it’s rayon, it’s cellulose and therefore breathable. I made many samples and wore them almost everyday in the summer. I have tested every wash (and dry) and have concluded that rayon must be dry-cleaned. Don’t be tempted to hand wash the top because the rayon fibers (like silk) do not like water!
The tunics are available in 2 colors: ochre & ochre/ivory color block.
There are 4 available sizes: Small (dress sizes 0-4), Medium (dress sizes 6/8), Large (dress sizes 10/12) and X-Large (dress sizes 14)
Below are images of the models in size x-large and medium. The model is 5’4” and a standard size 14. The other model is 5’8” and about a size 2. (Cape Style looks best with loose fit.)
As you can see, the top looks nice on different figures and can be dressed up with jewelry or worn casual with jeans. It will be a well-loved addition to any wardrobe!
