Tunic - Schmunic

In the midst of a million lovely shop orders I found a spare evening or two to decipher one of my Japanese pattern books and put together this little tunic and braided headband.  I was admiring this tunic over at Make Something and decided to try my hand.  Many tutorials latter and some frustrating Japanese translations gone wrong .... ta da! Thank you Favorite Tunic Dress Vest book :)

P.S. Japanese style tends to be much more "flow-y" than this petit American body can handle so I had to take in the baby-doll sides a bit.  These sites were super helpful when trying to learn to use the Japanese pattern book :)
