I’m on an epic button-up shirt/tunic sewing quest this fall, friends. I’ve got several classic button-up collared shirts on my list, but I’ve got some non-traditional picks on the list too, for variety.

This one is swingy and quick to sew, and while the pattern is actually a bit on the cropped side, it can easily lengthened into a tunic. Pair it with slim-fit pants or skinny jeans to balance out the volume and this is an easy favorite!

There are two versions but version A, with the v-neck and pop-over placket, looks like a great alternative when I’m sick of sewing collars.

I like the Kaylee Tunic by Sew Serendipity a lot — I appreciate that it has a loose fit with waist shaping that allows it to be comfortable without being shapeless. I’m also a fan of the Gallery Tunic, which is comfortable, cute and relatively easy to sew. Both of these are on my to-sew list for fall.

Last year we featured a book in our “Off the Shelf” column called The Tunic Bible. It’s basically a single pattern that you fit to yourself and then change up to make a whole range of garments. It has instructions for altering the length, sleeves, shape, neckline, collar — everything you need to make any style of tunic you can imagine. I have a copy in my office waiting for me to start working on the pattern, but I haven’t gotten to it yet. I’ll need to add that to my sewing to-do list!

JILL HS CROPPED 150x150 Top Tunic Sewing PatternsI love tunics. They’re one of my favorite pieces to sew. I wear tunics all year long. In the hot months I wear them with kicky heels or flats. In the cooler months I pair them with rolled up jeans or leggings and the requisite fall shoe: the bootie. I sew them up in silk, cotton, knits, just about any type of fabric. They’re so versatile and can look art teacher funky to date-night chic. Here’s just a few of my latest favorites.

I love this BurdaStyle pattern. It takes the usual shape of a tunic design but adds  fun details. Burdastyle Tunic Dress 2 Top Tunic Sewing PatternsThis tunic, again from BurdaStyle is has a more traditional tunic look but is not short on style. Looks good at the poolside or just about anywhere. burdastyle tunic 1 Top Tunic Sewing PatternsSew Liberated as a tunic pattern that is traditional in style but with the right fabric will be a must in my closet this year. I especially love the higher armhole and closer fit in the bodice. This would be cute longer or shorter.
