A Flannel Tunic: Simplicity 2255

I ran across this flannel one day…it was thick and lovely. It felt like a blanket to wear. Perfect for a tunic over leggings. Perfect for Simplicity 2255, because this pattern has an option with little ruffles along side the upper button placket. I love plaid flannel, but I want it to be just a little feminine.

This was my first time working with plaid anything, so I was a plaid matching virgin. I did just fine except for the button placket. I had just run out of plaid matching fabric and had to go with the only available strip left. I would have loved a bias cut placket.

I love this shirt. My family must be sick of seeing me in it. It really feels like I’m wearing a favorite blankey…a blankey that fits.

It’s hard to see, but instead of turning a narrow hem on the ruffles I just serged the edges. The look is great on the flannel (gray thread), and the ruffles are much softer than they would have been with a hem.

The tunic has vertical darts on the back for great shaping.

Yay! Matchy, matchy!

Tears of recognition, tears of joy, and tears of sadness that since my transition I have failed to find “our love.” I am so happy for you both and wish you many, many years of joy together. Love each other. Love like there’s no tomorrow. That’s the love that changes not only your world, but the whole world. <3
