Japanese linen is the focus

With this simple tunic adapted from McCalls 6102, it's the fabric that's the star. The material is a Japanese linen bought from The Cloth Shop last month. I was lucky as there was only 1.7 metres left on the roll which was just enough to make up this A-line (although the photos don't show that it's A-line),  pull over tunic with cap sleeves. It works well with 3/4 length black linen pants. I wore the tunic yesterday and received compliments about my outfit! It's very encouraging when people say "It doesn't look home made".
