Amy Butler Anna Tunic

My clothing kick continues today with the Amy Butler Anna Tunic.  When I first started sewing I was in awe of Amy Butler, her fabrics, and her patterns.  I scooped up everything I came across.

I have now broadened my horizens a bit but when doing some housekeeping in my sewing studio (sounds fancy, huh!?) the other day I came across this long forgotten pattern.  I also had a good chunk of yardage of one print from Pat Bravo's Carnaby line.  

Side Note:  Pat Bravo is to me as Tula Pink is to lots of others.  In other words, I love every fabric line she puts out even if they aren't in a color palette I normally go for.

Anyway, back to the Anna Tunic...

The fit is just okay and may need to be adjusted.  

I'm not crazy about the way I styled it but that can be fixed :).  I'm thinking with a pair of navy leggings and a cardigan of some sort it could be pretty cute.  (Cardigans are so wonderful when it comes to covering up slight flaws with the fit!) 

I managed to put the top together fairly easily.  There was a bit of time spent with the seam ripper when it came to putting on the yoke but nothing too bad :).  Overall a fun pattern and a bit more advanced than the usual patterns I've tried.  I wouldn't rule out the possibility of another version of this in a voile sometime in the near future...


  1. I think this looks great! I also luv me some Pat Bravo, esp that Carnaby line.
