Sew Serendipity Tunic

Finally finished!  This top was a bit frustrating for me, but I think it's because it had so many steps
 - I'm pretty happy with the finished product.  All of the edges are serged and it fits very well.  I put in the invisible zipper, but it did not come out that great so I ended up removing it.  If I'm careful, this goes right on over my head :)
The fabric is great - it's a voile from the Innocent Crush collection by Anna Maria Horner.  I would definitely recommend this fabric!  The pattern is from the book Sew Serendipity.  This project was supposed to be my entry for the Craft Book Challenge in March but I just couldn't get it done!  So, I'll do a second project for April.  Something simple!  :)

Very pretty! I really like the sleeves and neckline and the voile you have used is beautiful - this delicate fabric is just right for this feminine, retro style.

Hi

I'm just in the process of adding the sleeves to this tunic and frankly am finding it quite difficult. Would you mind emailing me any hints that you may recall when attaching the sleeves? I find that when I match the seams, the notches don't match, and the sleeves fall short of the front and back points.
