I hope this is the right place to make this request...if it isn't please let me know.

I have been looking for a tunic blouse pattern. It has a standing, mandarin-type collar, long sleeves. It buttons from the left top edge of the collar, across the shoulder and down the left front side of the tunic.

Years and years ago, my mother made this tunic out of 2" quilted squares. It was beautiful. I would like to make something similar.

Any ideas where I may find this pattern?

Hmm, It's a pretty popular style nowadays and I'm sure I've seen it in most of the major pattern catalogues.

If you are willing to spend a little exta money on the pattern I suggest checking out Folkwear patterns. If you go to their Asian section there are several styles which might fit the bill including the Nepali Blouse, the Chinese Jacket (it sounds like this is what you are looking for), the Honk Kong Cheongsam, and the Vietnamese Ao Dai.

By the by, the idea of using the quilted squares sounds lovely.
