Description of the Free Tunic Pattern
This is a Free printable PDF sewing pattern for the Flare Tunic Design. It’s simple but not boring and easy to make. Shaped and accented at the shoulders and flare at the waist and hips.
This pattern is designed for knitted fabric. It can be made from any type of knitted fabric and jersey knits like cotton or rayon, Ponte de Roma, etc.
Flare Tunic Features:
• flare shape.
• 3/4 sleeves.

• layered PDF feature of the pattern. This allows you to print only the sizes you are going to need.

• a step-by-step sewing tutorial.
Skill level: confident beginner, sewing with knits.
I find this sewing pattern to be a beginner friendly project. However, if you are not used to working with knits, you might find it a bit challenging.
Size: US 4-22, EU 10-24 (see the size chart below for detailed measurements). This size chart is for body measurements, not for ready garment measurements. This pattern is created for knit fabrics. Therefore, make sure to follow the fabric recommendations and choose a size according to your body measurements in order to achieve best results.
Fabric consumption depends on the width of the fabric and the size you are going to make. For example, you are going to need approximately 1.8 meters/ 2 yards of fabric for the largest size, if the fabric is 45 inches wide (120 cm).
Use light or medium-weight knit fabric like cotton, rayon, Ponte, etc. Woven fabrics are not suitable for this design. The size chart is for body measurements, not finished garment measurements.
Other materials: no other materials needed.
• Regular sewing machine. Use a narrow zigzag stitch (or any type of stitch that tolerates stretching according to your machine manual) to join the details.
• Scissors for the fabric and for the paper.
Optional: serger and a coverstitch machine
Detailed printing, cutting and sewing instructions are provided in the sewing pattern description.
