The Presto Tunic is a woven top meant for apparel fabrics. The tunic has a loose fit with gentle shaping with darts at the bust and back to give a flattering silhouette. A banded collar gives the tunic a polished look. Or, opt for the easy bias bound neckline to save some time. The inset panel gives you an opportunity to mix fabrics or even add a special detail like pin tucks. Use buttons or snaps or even leave them off entirely to pair with a cami. Side vents are also included to give you more breathing room. This tunic is an intermediate sew but is so satisfying when completed. No one will believe you when you say, ‘I made it!’

I absolutely love this pattern! Everything matches up beautifully. I did find it to be much looser than I expected for the stated measurements, but otherwise it is fabulous.

This project had a lot of firsts for me! It wasn’t an easy sew, BUT it was a great project for learning new skills. I’m really proud of my finished top!
Another excellent pattern by LN!

I printed the Presto out before realizing it is a XXXL at its largest. I usually do a 2 or 3x with full bust. Disappointed and feeling a bit lazy to enlarge it to fit. boo hoo. I was looking forward to sewing it.

Awesome pattern–I only had to shorten the dart. Instructions make it easy to sew up a stunner, and I love that the option for pin tucks is included. I mashed this with Cadence to get a knee-length dress.
