Buy the Stevie Tunic sewing pattern from Tilly and the Buttons. With no darts, zips or set-in sleeves, Stevie is a satisfyingly quick and easy make – yay! Stevie has a modern, boxy fit, with a round neckline and grown-on sleeves, closing at the back with pretty ties or a button loop. Make Stevie as a top with a cropped hemline that hits the high hip, or as an above-the-knee dress, with optional turn-up cuffs and patch pocket. Throw it on with a statement necklace and you’re good to go!
