I am in Tunic Love, Style Arc "Michelle Tunic"

Michelle Tunic by StyleArc

Style Arc "Michelle Tunic"

Black floral rayon crepe challis (or something like that).  It is flowy, almost see-through, crepey, and rayony. (Those aren't words, but they describe this fabric)

I have done two photo sessions with this top and not one picture can focus on all those flowers from a distance.  Sorry!

Construction notes:
Others have noted the neckline of this dress being high and the keyhole notch not a keyhole, but a long slash placed very low.  So, I redrafted it to my liking.  I also redrafted the sleeve for my forward shoulders.  Like MAGIC, I can move my arms in this top!

This top is truly a perfect fit for me.  The sleeves have just enough room and the bodice width in the front and back are just perfect.    It is one of those sweet moments when the whole garment comes together!

Love the fit of the bodice!
