Comfortable, Classic and Timeless
Our Coloring Blocks pattern is a wonderful asymmetrical styled garment that can be worn as a tunic or dress. The back is a mirror image of the front with two - 1" pleats at the shoulder line for more style ease.
It's very easy to sew with a shirt-tail type hem, and nine buttons. You can "fake" the bottom four button holes if you like, and sew the lower edge in place.
Includes sizes 8-16.

As a tunic, Coloring Blocks can be worn over a straight skirt, trousers, stirrup pants, and jeans. You may also wear it as a great looking dress. The design sews up well in drapey fabrics, rayons, batiks, and mid-weight denims.
We really liked the idea of 'blocks-of-color', that's what started this entire design. Because it's all straight lines, it's very easy to sew. To stabilize the seams we just serged everything - fast and effective; we're a big fan of fast. One other thing, you don't have to have real buttons holes all the way done the front. You can stitch fake button holes for the bottom four - and top-stitch the lower section in place.
