I sewed this teal top (Pamela’s Patterns #119) because I loved the asymmetrical neckline design and thought it was a great way to showcase an interesting piece of jewelry. Maybe you have a similar tunic silhouette in your own closet – custom made or ready-to-wear. Cabi (a RTW line often featured in my posts) offers similar styles nearly every season. It is comfy as can be, but felt a little too unstructured for my curvy shape. Hair scrunchie to the rescue!
Working from the wrong side of the garment, I pulled a handful of the fabric (about waistline level) through a doubled-over ponytail holder (a plain rubber band could work too) to add some drape to the design, pull it in a bit closer to my body curves and break up that horizontal hemline. Isn’t that a lot more flattering look? And I love how the new lower edge shape echoes the neckline detail too.
Grab a rubber band, try this with any slightly oversized tops in your closet, and let us hear how it worked for you.
