Jaime's Endless Summer Tunic
A Verb for Keeping Warm is an awesome shop in Oakland, CA that shares our love of both sewing and knitting. They have just released their first print sewing pattern and it is awesome. Welcome, Endless Summer Tunic!
Pattern: Endless Summer Tunic by A Verb for Keeping Warm
Fabric: Hemp/cotton chambray stripe
Size made: 37" - smallest size
Alterations: Shortened the tunic by 2"
Endless Summer Tunic is a pullover tunic with gathered shoulder plackets and a v-neckline. It pulls on with no closures and also has pockets. This tunic is amazingly comfortable and I've already worn it several times since making it just a couple of weeks ago.
The tunic comes together easily with well written instructions. The neck is finished with a facing and the armholes are finished with bias tape. Small gathers on the back placket are a cute touch. The back is just longer than the front and it has a slight shirttail hem.
The fabric I chose is a dreamy, lightweight hemp/organic cotton pinstripe chambray. It is so soft and flowy, I just want to live in this! We just received another bolt of this beautiful, limited edition fabric...
The fit is loose and casual. The only alteration I made was to shorten the tunic a couple of inches. Endless Summer Tunic pattern is available in the shop now - I bet you can't make just one!

I love your Endless Summer Tunic! I absolutely love this pattern – I’m now on my THIRD! I made my first on in cotton (a really unappealing stripped shirting cotton) not expecting to like it but wanting to check the fit. I had done an FBA on it and added a french dart so I wanted to check it for other things too :) The fit was perfect and honestly I looked in the mirror and immediately fell in love with it. Everything about this pattern is wonderful…it’s simple but challenging just enough to have some fun, the hang and fit and the design. It has quickly become my TNT and I’m just hemming one in a grass-green linen. My last one was in a very drapey silk that is just gorgeous :) Can’t recommend this pattern more highly!
