Silver Tunic?

Since I had ‘just the right’ thread in my serger, I decided to start with the silver knit Jalie tunic first. I was a bit leery about working with this material because I’ve had problems sewing some beefy rib knits in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised working with this one – it sewed up beautifully, although it did sound rough going through the serger (all those ribs are pretty tall). The instructions were easy to follow and the instructions for the neckline produced a perfect, pointed ‘V’. My only complaint is that the tunic is way too long (at least for my short body) and looks more like a dress than a top. The photo on the left is the (unhemmed, so you’ll have to envision it 2 inches shorter) tunic while the photo on the right has the excess material removed (and hemmed):

Overall, another winner, but I’ll probably just stay away from the longer tunic length unless I’m looking for a short dress this summer.

    You whipped that up pretty darn quick Stacy. The other ladies are right. It’s a perfect fit and really pretty on you.

    I love the fit! I don’t think it’s too long at all, but I know it’s a preference thing. I will have to get this one! Thanks for listing the fabric sources.

    Hi Stacy, What a gorgeous top…I really love the long length version too… have a look at the Metalicus website…they do tank dresses and use other layers… I pictured a little belt on your long version some tights and boots and off you go… you did a wonderful job…

    I’m sorry to have to ask, but I want to post on your posts Stacy, but for whatever reason, I can’t find how to do it without someone else being first. Not that I want to be first, I just want to reply when I’m fresh from reading your post. Any idea?

    What I see after someone replies to your post is a little dark caption thingy with the number of replies you have had. At that point, I can just click on it, read the replies and find I have the option underneath. This is driving me just a little nutty. Thank you in advance.
