Diva Approved – Part 1

As the rest of the Divas will attest, I’m not a huge fan of the Luxe Boho look, however this shrunken tunic from Simplicity is pretty cute ‘n current and you don’t need to look like a Calvin Klein model to wear it.

The neckline variations are pretty nice, and the subtle shaping is great also. Notice there is a dolman sleeve as well as a set in sleeve – it’s nice to have a choice.

Stay tuned to this space for a review…I might be able to get it done this weekend.

  2. I’m glad you pointed out this pattern; I had overlooked it completely, and it really does have possibilities. I’ll need to choose the fabric carefully (think Chicos, Karla, not junior department….) to avoid the dreaded mutton-dressed-as-lamb look.
