Finished December Garment - Burdastyle Tunic Dress 11/2013

Hello and Welcome to 2014 dear friends!! Today post is about my (very late) finished December garment for MAGAM challenge .

The details of the dress: Pattern: I used Burdastyle Embellished tunic Dress 11/2013  size 34 with adjustment on the waist and the hips. I omitted the pockets and added 4 cm on the length of the dress. As I didn't have passementerie trim to sew around neck edge and front slit, I sew pearls on it. Materials: 2 yards of medium weight knit ponte in black color, fusible interfacing, black color of thread, hook and eye fastener, a lot of pearls in three different size ( 2.5 mm, 5 mm and 8 mm) and white nylon thread for beading. Sewing process: I traced the pattern and added seam allowance 1.5 cm for all edges and 4 cm for sleeve hem and dress hem. Then I made a muslin. After I tried my muslin, I saw the neckline too high for my taste - so I have to reduce
