A classic fashion article dating back to the ancient Romans, loose-fitting tunics reaching down to the knees are ideal for layering as well as concealing. They can be paired with jeans or leggings or worn as a dress, bringing instant versatility to your wardrobe.

This book features a collection of tunics and dresses that can be made with ease, using the straight-stitch setting on a sewing machine. By choosing different fabrics, adding frills at the sleeves, inserting tucks, and so forth, you can expand the possible variations almost endlessly, heightening the fun of making stylish clothing by hand.

The author's simple designs and up-to-date, I-can-hardly-wait-to-try-it-on! styles have won many fans, with readers reporting that as soon as they've finished one project they want to start another.

Forty full-color pages show the finished garments, and complete patterns for each project are included in reduced dimensions.
