Nearly 2 years ago I released the Lucy Tunic pattern for girls. Ever since I have received almost daily requests for a women’s version. So I finally did it! Here is the women’s version!
There are some differences in the woman’s version. Why? Because women are not like kids. We have curve and shape and totally different proportions. So I kept with the same style lines, then changed everything else 🙂 I added bust darts to offer some shaping, and instead of the pleated sleeve I opted for a clean fitted sleeve.
The top still has the front curved overlap which is really flattering and modern looking. The back is more fitted and tailored since the front has a looser more casual look they balance out well so it doesn’t get sloppy looking.
I shortened it a bit since I feel like it’s more flattering for top to fall at the hip line than below the hip, but the pattern comes with super easy instructions to lengthen the top as long as you want.
I also removed the pockets since the top is already fully lined the added bulk of reversible pockets right at the hip line may not be super desirable but you could always add some by following this super easy tutorial:
The pattern comes with detailed instructions on getting the perfect fit, and several style options. Including the classic 2 button style, a waist button option (that my testers liked to wear with a belt) and open for a casual look. The front is designed to have a nice drape even when open.
The pattern is completely reversible as well so you can get multiple looks from one top, but I am pretty sure you will want to make several anyway 🙂
You can pick up the pattern now!
(also big thanks to my sister for being my model, she is pretty awesome)
As always I have the best testers, and I asked if I could share some of their photos so here is a little mini round up of only some of the amazing Lucy’s from testing
Clockwise starting in the top left:
Emily made this great polka dot with a pop of yellow I love it buttoned or belted.
Jenni made this floral and mustard version for her sister.
Amy made hers with this beautiful blue print and used snaps instead of buttons, I love the clean look.
Trinh made this lovely bird one with a single button.
Deana made this lovely reversible one and I can’t tell if I like the print or the blue best.
Erin made this monotoned one, another fan of the belted waist button, and I love the red.
If you make one too upload it to our flickr group HERE I would love to see and share!
