This will be your new fave go-to top! It's casual and polished at the same time and perfect to throw on over jeans, capri pants and slim pants. The silhouette is flowy and tunic length, with a slightly longer back - which means it will hide a multitude of fluff and scallops. The front has a nice semi-fitted look, but when you turn around, the back is what really sets it apart. The lower back has a shirt tail hem and box pleat, sewn into a slightly curved low back yoke. As a detail option, add an exposed zipper at the back neckline for a cool trendy look. Choose between two scoop necklines and several sleeve lengths, including a flattering roll back cuff.
Pamela’s Patterns are designed with the most common fit alterations built right in – high round back, forward shoulder, full bust option, extra hip/tummy room, and a great fit in the neck and shoulder.
