My iPad battery is drained from so many Craftsy fitting classes. I just finished Lynda Maynard's class "Sew the Perfect Fit," when I started on this tunic. Perfect timing!!!!

I followed the directions as they were written. I did add trim under the bust and at the hem. The trim is just a stripe fabric pleated with the ruffle foot.
(See my pictures at the bottom of this blogpost.)
I made a muslin of this top and found a few fitting issues. I highly recommend Lynda Maynard's fitting class. She has you draw (or stitch) the grainlines on the muslin. It is like an arrow pointing to the problem. I cut through the bust and lowered it by about 1 1/2". The grainlines above the bust were not straight, so I played around with adding fabric and found the shoulder needed about 1 1/4" of fabric. All of my alterations were in length, nothing added around!!!!
This is a great tunic to transition into fall in Houston! It will still be in the 90's for a few more weeks!
