Cynthia Rowley 2584 - As a Tunic

I'm not one of those girls who makes a pattern and packs it away, never to be used again.  Once I find one that I like ... I use it again and again.  Case in point - Cynthia Rowley 2584.  I have worn the heck out of the orange dress that I made with this pattern and decided to make a tunic too!

This pattern goes together so easily.  I used a bright quilting cotton and white dupioni silk - I have a huge appreciation for cotton - its so easy to sew with.

I made it exactly the same as the orange dress (but a size up) and obviously cut it a lot shorter.  I omitted the zipper which made it even easier and left the elastic out of the sleeves.

I definitely plan to make this as a dress at least one more time this spring!  One of my favorites!


  1. I just made this pattern three times in a row and love it! Your tunic is so cute -I love the white silk yoke!

  2. Adorable! I think you need to elevate your skills beyond novice!

  3. very nice - I love the contrast fabric and it fits so well.
