In my opinion, part of the beauty of our basics patterns is their simplicity. The efficient construction means that the fabric you choose has a chance to really showcase its own unique qualities. The Tunic in particular has a lovely form that lends itself to flowing, drapey fabrics with an airy sensibility. With this in mind, I've chosen a selection of fabric suggestions for our Basics Tunic. Now I love a loud print and fun fabric (see my Basics Tunic sew along), but I've decided on a little theme for today's collection: each fabric I've chosen is blue!
When I sewed this pattern for myself, I chose a cotton voile for the fabric. We have a number of voiles in stock, and I'm partial to this navy blue organic cotton voile. It is a little sheer, so be mindful of how you style it, but it is really beatuiful and feels wonderful.
Speaking of sheer, this navy silk organza would make for an interesting garment! Layered with a camisole or other layer underneath, naturally.
