Charlie Tunic Pattern Review!

I am in LOVE with this pattern.

I had the honor of pattern testing the Charlie Tunic for Made by Rae. She will soon be releasing this pattern – and you need to RUN over to get it.  Or, um, click over to her site really quickly… anyway, it is a must have.

I tend to be of the draft your own pattern or just wing it category, so I don’t buy a lot of patterns.  But I could not have come up with this one on my own.  And certainly not the way Rae has!

The pattern includes optional facings around the sleeves, neck, and side vents.  They add such a sweet touch to this adorable tunic!

And if you have never used one of Rae’s patterns before (which I totally admit, I hadn’t!), it was incredibly well-written, with clear step-by-step pictures to help you along the way.  It was a very quick sew, too… well, would have been had life not gotten in the way.  Ever have those weeks where your sewing machine is calling to you and you feel like the entire universe is trying to keep you from getting over there?  Please tell me I’m not the only one who has weeks like those….

In typical Jess fashion, I upcycled a thrifted sheet for this top.  And who’s surprised about the stripes?  Seriously, who can not love this boy in stripes?

Rae is releasing this pattern soon – put it on your “must make as soon as that pattern gets in my inbox” list.
