The button down tunic

This is the latest sewing project I've finised: a shirt dress/tunic. For those who've been reading my blog for awhile, you know my obsession with the Olsen twins, and this tunic reminds me of something they would wear.

Pattern is McCalls7472

(I ran out of the black buttons so used red ones instead for the pocket flaps and I quite like the contrast.)
Please excuse the wrinkles. Took this pic after I tried it on:D

 Love that there are the sleeve tabs so you can wear this with 3/4 sleeves.


Super! I love to team up dresses with sneakers too. And I like the addition of coloured buttons.
Cute pattern! I love the look of tunics but I tend to stay away because I'm afraid they might make me look short.

Oh I totally see the Olsen twin connection with this tunic. I have a "you got it, dude" t-shirt that's so long, I could probably turn it into a tunic.

I love it! Especially the way it flows~
Really great job! I love the side tabs on the sleeves and side slits Emmy. Nice print :D

Love that shirt and I definitely feel like this is Olsen approved. Oh man, speaking of which I miss those days of them being "it" girls. Maybe I'm just getting old but I feel like celeb fashion was at its pinnacle back then no?!
