    Hi Mayra, You’re so sweet to take the time to do all of these patterns! I remember this kind of top/dress when I was younger and I loved this style. I also love the stories you put with each pattern; they make me smile every time I go to copy a pattern! Laura

  2. Sabrina says:

    I love this dress and I am just about to start making it with white linen. Is it necessary to cut two front pieces? Or can it be cut as one piece on the fold. I am a beginner so it’s new to me.

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Sabrina, since you are a beginner is best to follow the instructions as they are written. Let me know how you go.

  3. Alexa says:

    Hello I am having trouble with a pattern download the only page that wont print right is page 1 of the actual pattern, all of them printed out but this page.

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      That is certainly strange, before you print can you see a thumbnail first is it portrait or landscape?

  4. Sarah says:

    This is such a great pattern! I see the description for the finished garment measurements, but I am unsure which one to choose because finished measurement are different than actual measurements. Does anyone know? Thanks!

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Sarah great question, in a pattern always, go with the finished measurements. This top is supposed to be loose.

  5. SILKE says:

    Hi, is there already a video?

  6. Libby B. says:

    Could you post a video of you making this dress?

  7. Nancy says:

    I see that the seam allowance is 5/8″. Sorry if this a crazy question but is the seam allowance already figured into the pattern for each respective size or do I need to add that in myself?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Not at all Nancy, sometimes I add the seam allowance and sometimes I dont, depending on what basic bodice I use. The seam allowance in this case is already added.

  8. Sherrie says:

    I’d love to give this a try. I’d make mine as a tunic top, not a dress. Can the dress be worn so that the shoulders are covered, rather than off shoulder? Thank you very much!

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Someone else asked me that question, and after giving it some thought I have to say, yes if you have not a lot on the chest area. Otherwise your have to raise the collar by 1″ or more depending on how big you are.

  9. Jelena says:

    So beautiful…. I subscribe for your patterns and I follow you… Great job….

  10. Shirley Lewis says:

    Could you help me with the layout of the pattern pieces.

  11. Teresa Figueroa says:

    Thank you for the free pattern! I’m almost done with my tunic. All that I have left to do is add the bottom trim. But….I cannot find any that looks anything like the one you used. Where did you get your trim?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Teresa,
      I combined 2 trims I had and crochet them together. I knew what I wanted I just could not find it. A 2″ crochet lace and a 1/2″ trim should get you there.

      • Teresa Figueroa says:

        Oh, I see. That’s a very clever idea. I’m a crocheter, too, so this is certainly an option. Thank you.

  12. Mari says:

    What is the seam allowance for this tunic? Thx

  13. Diana Zavala says:

    Wonderful story. Can you tell me how to adapt it for dress length that you mentioned?

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Just extend the side seams to the length you want, and recreate the hemline.. Let me know how you go. Cheers!

  14. Edith says:

    Beautiful story and the dress too. I want sew it just more long.

  15. Kay says:

    Lovely pattern for summer and loved the story too!

  16. Jane McLellan says:

    Greatly enjoyed the story!

  17. I love that story!! Sometimes the grounding is totally worth the party. 🙂 I’ve got a Craft Gossip post scheduled for tomorrow morning that features your free pattern: http://sewing.craftgossip.com/?p=88535 –Anne

  18. moois van me says:

    I love love love this tunic!!! Not only the pattern but also the fabric and the lace.

  19. Sarah Jane says:

    Great story, Mayra! I love this style, I’ll have to give this dress a try!

  20. Pat L. says:

    Where did the Facebook Sewing Chat Group page go? It was my favorite!

  21. mary says:

    For this style, which is a modified raglan sleeve, I sew all the sleeve seams first. In this case, that would also include the front seam. The neck finish would be next, followed by the side an sleeve seams, sleeve hems, then garment hems. These steps allow me to sew “on the flat.”

  22. Mary H. says:

    Can this be worn with the shoulders pulled up? I have to wear a bra! I wish you had a picture of it on the model with the shoulders up!

    • Mayra at So Sew Easy says:

      Hi Mary, yes, of course you can. I’ll put a picture of the model like that sometime tomorrow.

  23. Sandra Yosten says:

    I love your story. It echos many of my own. I had a top like this in the 60’s/70’s. I forgot how much I loved it. Can’t wait to whip up 1 or two. Thank you for the great patterns.

  24. Dawn says:

    I love the story behind this. When I was 13 and my sister was 15 she used to wait till my parents were asleep then sneak out the house taking the spare key. My job was to lock the door behind her and take the key out. Only one time I forgot so when she came home she couldn’t get her key in the lock. She tried throwing things at the window and everything to get my attention but she couldn’t wake me. She hid in the shed and waited for my Dad to go to work the following morning then slipped in the house and up the stairs. I thought she was going to strangle me! Thank you for the free pattern, I’m looking forward to making it.
