I sewed a little bit each day this week and managed to finish the tunic today while catching up on season 2 of The Tudors.
I’m really happy with the way this turned out and am anxious to cut another out of the crinkled silk chiffon.
I know it looks kind of maternity on the dressform but it really is flattering on thanks to the bust darts and fitted back. It will look great with white pants or shorts this summer. I tend to favor tops that are quite fitted through the midriff so it’s fun to mix it up a little.
Nancy asked why I put the eyelets in before joining the upper and lower bodic pieces. I guess I did that by force of habit – sometimes it isn’t possible to get the pliers in when you need to insert an eyelet or snap in the interior of the garment. Of course, because the neckline is open on this garment, it would have made more sense to insert the eyelets after the seam had been sewn. Good call!
Nancy also nominated me for a Sisterhood Award! I am honored and grateful to be your sewing sister!
I am supposed to nominate ten other sewing bloggers for this award. Naturally, all the blogs I already read have been nominated but I will work on that in the next few days. Sew on!
