New Look 6098 Waves Tunic


Aloha Again!

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start.  Thanks so much for all the honest and helpful feedback on the vintage dress.  I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet, but I am leaning toward restyling it into a skirt.  Time will tell.  On to something new!

I was certain, when I originally made New Look 6098, that I would want to make it again.  Last time I didn't use a fabric I was in love with, but this time I did.  I found this rayon knit at Marcy Tilton's website.  I only wish I had ordered enough for a dress.  However, I am thrilled I had enough to make the tunic.  Creating this look was a breeze, because I already had all the fit issues worked out.  You can read about them in the original post by clicking on the New Look 6098 link above if you are interested.  Here is the look.
I finished the neckline the same as the last version:
Creating this top was just what I needed to recover from my last sewing excursion, LOL.  Aloha!
The capris are ready-to-wear.
