Lace Ruffle Tunic
This shirt was featured in the Spring 2010 issue of Stitch magazine, and is the design of Beki Wilson. She is a talented clothing designer, and you can find her website here.
It was easy to make and turned out pretty cute.
Here's what I found when making this tunic:
It ran a little large, mostly because it is loose fitting. The jersey fabric I used is a little too thick and didn't drape as much as I wanted. The ruffle emphasized my bust too much, and I would probably omit it next time. It was also a little short on me, and I would recommend checking the finished length on yourself with a measuring tape before you cut the pieces out.
If I make another one for myself (I probably will), I am going to make it longer, omit the ruffle and probably use a cotton voile or something lighter with a nice drape.
