Crafty: Fisherman-inspired tunic

This fisherman-inspired tunic got inspiration from the Merchant and Mills' The Top No. 64. I bravely decided to self-draft the pattern in the spur of the moment. Despite 1 failure I persevered on and ended up with a pretty nice tunic. I am really looking forward to pulling this on in the winter. The fabric came from a sale at Minerva and is so soft.

It took me a long time and lots of concentration to get the stripes of the pockets to line up so that they blend into the body of the tunic.

Chunky zip on the back.

I decided to add a contrasting stripe section under the arms - the jury is still out on elbow patches...
