The great thing about sewing itself is that you can easy change details on the pattern to make exactly what you want. And a great thing with the Ballard pattern is that there are various illustrated options for changes on the pattern. Isn't that great?  I think it´s big help, especially if you are a beginner.

I have chosen to have an open back, but closed the back for about 10 cm from the top and down. I've also modified the arm length, and put bias along all edges.

The instructions on the pattern are well written and thorough, so you know exactly what to do next. The tunic is easy to sew, even if you are a beginner, whether you choose to make an open or closed back.

I love my tunic! It fits so well. If you're an advanced sewist you can use the Ballard Tunic as a canvas for lots of different design ideas. I must say I think the tunic is a "must have"  because you can wear it with everything and modify it in so many different ways.
