My newest design: the Minnie Tunic Blouse!

The Minnie Tunic Top by AC Clothing and Bags

These tunic blouses, inspired by the free styles of the 1920’s and named for one of my favorite musical artists of all time, Memphis Minnie, feature a sleeveless, softly fitting shaped bodice, a square neckline, a petal-like layered curved hemline which overlaps the front center panel on either side, and vintage and/or contemporary fabrics and embellishments.

It’s available with rolled hems, or bound in a contrasting color, both options shown in the photos; I can create it for you as a pullover, or with a hidden side snap up placket.

These tops are made to order by request; you may choose the fabric from my fabric shopand I will select a suitable trim which suits the fabric for you, or you may choose one from my shop as well.

I have many more lovely trims than I offer for sale in my shop which I reserve only for my own designs.

Please allow 6 – 10 days from the time you order to the time your top is shipped

TO ORDER – Please convo me with:

1) your size request: small, medium,
or large
2) your favorite suitable vintage print fabric
from my fabric shop

NOTES for choosing fabric: must be a woven
(not stretch) fabric and lighter weight, such as shirting or calico

For sizing, please refer to my Size Guide & convo me with any remaining questions

She is currently a historical researcher and writing assistant and part-time educator. As time allows, she is also currently working on a full-length scholarly biography of McCune Smith and on compiling and editing his complete written works. Amy holds a PhD in History from the University of Edinburgh (2021); an MA in Intellectual History with Distinction from the University of Edinburgh (2018); a BA in Philosophy: Ethics, Politics and Law, Summa Cum Laude from California State University at Sacramento (2013), and an AA in Humanities and Fine Arts from Riverside City College (1999).

Links to these and/or full articles can be found at her website – for which she plans to resume writing more frequently as soon as her busy schedule allows – which also features photo-illustrated writings about her history- and philosophy-themed travels and other topics. Born in California, USA, she now makes her home near Falkirk, Scotland.
