DIY TUNICS (MARIMEKKO STYLE)

DIY TUNIC MARIMEKKO STYLE

This week, we’ve been exploring Finnish design company, Marimekko, well known for creating colorful, often bold patterns and fabrics.

This pattern is a variation of our T-shirt Top, available in Alabama Studio Sewing + Design cut to tunic length.
