So many cute tunics!,but several have back details in the description. Next time would you please show a picture of the back.
PS I don’tthink”midi” describes a mine which is mid thigh; it’s mid calf. Also called tea length, I believe.

Why did you say these are “free” patterns when they cost money? You are pathetic.

    Helen - October 26, 2022

    All the patterns I’ve listed here were free of charge at the time of writing. Some may ask you to join their Facebook page or newsletter for a coupon but still they are all free.
    Which one are you looking at?
