Love a Laurel Tunic

I love a tunic. I have been dying to make the Laurel Tunic by Greenstyle for ages but hadn't got around to it. I decided one night I needed to try this pattern. So many other sewers had had amazing success with this pattern so I gave it a shot. I actually made this when the weather was still cooler in Sydney but  as luck would have it, the weather warmed up when I had finished the tunic but it will keep till next Autumn.
I made the 2XL without any alterations. I did a really dumb thing, I sewed the cowl on the wrong way the first time, then had to unpick and sew it on the right way, so I think the neckline is a bit smaller than it should be. Sometimes I worry myself.
I love the pleats in the skirt. I really like this pattern. It sewed together very well.
The fabric was from my stash a blue and beige knit. It was quite easy to sew and it feels lovely to wear.
I will definitely be making this again. I think I may lengthen the bodice next time. Also I didn't put the pockets in, I just don't like pockets in dresses. The only thing I don't like is I feel a bit too busty but I can live with that. A super comfortable tunic.
