The Juliet Nouveau is an update to the popular Juliet Tunic includes a fitted sleeveless bodice with a scoop neckline, gathered bustline, empire waist, and A-line skirt. There are 4 different lengths offered so you can make this design to suit your fancy. Variations include 3 different tie belts, tiered skirt (with or without contrasting fabric between), and a ruffle or hemband at the lower edge.
The back darts that were added to the bodice and skirt are really a way to pull the design in a bit and give it a little more definition. If you would rather have a looser fit, you can always leave the darts out. You would just ignore them by not marking or stitching them in place. The rest of the construction remains the same. This design features a center back zipper.
The pattern includes illustrated instructions for all variations and tissue pieces for sizes XXS – XXL.
