A Retro Tunic

f0194450_6345217.jpgI finished the tunic, but I didn't challenge the invisible zipper...shame on me. Instead, I used two buttons to close the back. Truly, I was going to try the zipper, but but... I totally blame Kathy for cheating. She was making the same tunic and told me about the button closure idea. "Oh yeah, that makes it so much easier" we chatted about how to "cheat" on the zipper when she came to pick up some fabric. And she is a middle school teacher :-) But, thanks to her, I really like the way it turned out. To confess, this was my first time using Ms. Butler's pattern, and it is true that the instruction is very well written and easy to follow. I will make it again, but probably skip the pockets next time. So you want to try?
