Tunic Top (Burda 5/2011-103)

A simple silk summer tunic. It is made from the old silk dress which was not old but never worn and then went out of fashion. Since it is wonderful natural silk I couldn't just throw it away and wanted to use it to make something new for hot summer weather.
It is a very simple project suitable for beginners. Made no changes in the pattern, only shortened it to the length that fits me better.



  1. Eine superschöne Verwendung für ein altes Sommerkleid! Der Stoff ist so schön, viel zu schade, um ihn wegzuwerfen. Aber zum Glück hast Du ja noch etwas sehr schönes daraus gemacht!

  2. Yes, Mary. I added an inch to close the collar line on my dress, I do this with all the Burda patterns, they are very low cut for my taste.
    This top is really yummy for this summer is starting, Great!
