We have tested and created the sewing pattern of the Butterick B6378.
This blouse, or tunic, is easy to make and an ideal, timeless classic.
The blouse is not only very casual (the tunike closure) but is also chic because of the bow and our extra added edge à la Chanel.
Many blogs have been written about tunics. It is a simple garment, ideal for summer, nice and wide and easy to put on and take off quickly.
However, we have the tunic more among our 'favorites' because the blouse (especially without sleeves) is ideal for under a Chanel jacket, the bow makes the round neck, often without a collar, more 'complete' and looks very young (er) but also chic and timeless.
The blouse can be made in many types of fabric. However, we recommend especially supple fabrics, such as viscose, georgette and chiffon.
A polin cotton or linen is possible, but the blouse will then look a bit 'bulky' very quickly.
The ultimate in chic: white silk!
