Fabric and materials recommendations
For the Studio Tunic, we recommend a mid-weight woven fabric. Some wonderful choices are mid-weight linen and chambray, cotton twill, Essex linen or light canvas, in solids or prints.
EWE Fibers has curated a wonderful collection of fabric and notions specifically for the Studio Tunic.
The drape or hand of the fabric will significantly impact the look and fit of the final garment – softer fabrics like washed linen will fall gently for a relaxed, garden vibe, and more sturdy fabrics like light canvas or twill will enhance the oversized, utility look and the A-line silhouette. (If you choose a heavier weight fabric, you might want to use a lighter fabric for your facings to reduce bulk.) More confident sewists might choose a viscose-linen blend for a really luxurious texture.
