Another Anna Tunic

I think overlocking is addictive. Or it could be this Anna Tunic from Amy Butler.

I made this one almost entirely on the overlocker and I'll say it again: it's quick!!
I changed the belt a bit. I was inspired by the fabric to create a thicker belt which is much more flattering for my shape. It is designed to sit under the best and cinch in the waist and I love how it alters the shape of the top. I'll model this properly later.

Sorry about the blurry pictures, I was in a hurry to get this blogged. I'm going to model it properly for the U-handblog comp (when I've brushed my hair!)

I overlocked around the neck-line and on the sleeves.

This belt was so easy to make and would look great with a plain shirt (FQF tute on its way).

Close up of the fabric-covered buttons.

I used overlock stitches on the lining and the hem.

Guess how much housework is NOT getting done in our house this week?
