Museum Tunic

Here is a little something I finished last fall but only got to wear once before it got too chilly.
Museum Tunic
I followed Anna Maria Horner's tutorial but then had to make several adjustments to make it perfect for me.
Here are the mods I made:
  • I used elastic thread for the waist instead of sewing in elastic (only because it was all I had)
  • had to take in a ton on the sides under the arms to make it a bit more fitted - don't ask me how I did it, I just winged it
  • Shortened the length by cutting off one row of squares
It's a bit fiddly to wear because I have to keep adjusting the sides of the waist because they start drooping down after a while. Also, I have to safety pin the shoulders to my camisole and bra to keep them up. Despite this I love how it came out!
