Lately I have been seeing lots of beautiful tops that have a layered skirt attached. When I saw the Ladies Two Tone Tunic from The Wolf and the Tree I knew I could create a top like the ones I have been seeing. This pattern comes with a lot of options, and I chose to make a short sleeve top with the high low tunic hem. I also used the lining to attach the short skirt with a lace accent.
I knew I wanted my lace to extend just past the outer layer of my shirt. In order to get this effect, I attached the short skirt to the lining piece. Next, I used some tailors chalk to mark where the skirt would be visible. I cut the skirt at that line, and then attached the lace to the skirt.
The pattern has five sleeve options: sleeveless, short, medium, 3/4 and long sleeves. There is a shirt or tunic length, as well as straight, high-low, or flapper style hem lines. You can make a plain shirt, or choose to add one of the skirt options, which include a short, long or layered skirt. Like I said, so many options!
The fabric I used for my Two Tone Tunic, was a beautiful coral fabric from Sew Vagabond. The fabric is double brushed poly, which makes this top extremely comfortable. I used a light weight white fabric for my lining, so that my shirt would not be too bulky. I found this beautiful lace trim at Hobby Lobby, and I think it adds the perfect accent to the floral fabric.
Modifications: I made the skirt shorter so that I could attach the lace and have it sticking out at the bottom of the shirt.
