I sewed up a size small, average bust, 3/4 sleeve with tab detail Love Notions Pemberely Tunic. I used cool-to-the-touch, one-way stretch knit bought locally off the clearance table at Hancock Fabrics (over a year ago). The dark brown tab detail and neckline are four-way stretch cotton lycra bought online from my favorite place to buy solid knits, the Purpleseamstress Fabrics.

Can I just say that I LOVE this pattern? I know that I'm a touch biased since I tested the pattern, but the Love Notions Pemberely Tunic was easy to sew up, easy to personalize, comfy to wear and appropriate to wear as a summer sundress, or a winter tunic layered with boots and leggings. Seriously- what more could a woman want in an article of clothing?!?!? Best of all, with the Love Notions Pemberely Tunic, you get to make it your own- tall, short (ahem!), thin, or fluffy!

My favorite elements of the Love Notions Pemberely Tunic are the button tabs at the sleeve and the shirt-tail hemline. Both are fun and worth the extra time to get right! 

Thank you, Tami (the talents and brains behind Love Notions!), for allowing me to test another great pattern for ME! I thoroughly enjoyed this one and can't wait to sew the Love Notions Pemberely Tunic as a dress!
