This is a t-tunic made following these instructions: Practical Worksheet for Tunic Construction at Cynthia Virtue's (aka Cynthia du Pré Argent) web site.

The pages that follow show the construction for a child's tunic. An adult tunic would be exactly the same, only larger. I made some modifications to the pattern for a child's tunic.

I cut out all the pattern pieces the day before I made the tunic, so I don't have photos of the cutting process. I do have detailed photos of the construction process, however.
