Some confusing instructions The tunic works out okay. The appliqué peeled off the fabric,though, so I had to hand sew it on.

The strip for the crown seems much too short for the sides. I’m not sure what to do about that.

Not for the faint-hearted seamstress Pattern is tricky but the tunic does look awesome. An online tutorial would really help with this one. I actually put the project down (to be picked back up at some later time in the far far future?) because I sewed the tunic in such a way that its like a mobius strip and I can’t turn it right side out. But if I ever do get it fixed, it will be great!
