ISSEY Miyake - V1204 - completed

Last night I managed to finish my Issey Miyake tunic that I started a couple of weeks ago.

Misses' Tunic and Pants: Very loose fitting tunic has tuck details, large collar, full length sleeves with plackets and cuffs.  Fitted, below waist pants has front side slant pockets, back patch pockets, fly zipper closing, back yoke, waistband, carriers and topstitch tri

Here is the end product - ideally I think it would look better with a slim pant and heels like the photo above, but I just wanted you to see the finished product.

Below is a photo of the cuff and placket

the back detail.

This tunic incorporated quite a few techniques that I haven't done in a long while, flat felled seams, and the tuck details.  There are two small buttons holding the front pieces together one on the inside and one of the outside.

I think my fabric is a little thinner than the fabric on the pattern cover but what this project has done is given me the incentive to incorporate the tuck details in more shirts.  Bunny from the blog La Sewista
made up McCalls 6076,  She used pin tucks and totally transformed her blouse and I may have to copy her idea as I have this pattern in my stash too.

I have one more post to do today, but just need to press the cardigan and photograph it so watch out for my next blog today.

Catch you later.................


  1. Those cuffs are fabulous! I am a huge Issey fan. I can't wait to see your next pin tuck adventure. The tunic is great and you have me aching to try this pattern.

  2. Lovely shirt Pauline. The details make it really special.

  3. I've had my eye on this one for ages - so good to see it made up. It really is a most unusual shirt but so unique. Lovely work on the details.

  4. Your detail is beautiful! What a great shirt.
