Project Seventy Eight: Another Summery Tunic Top
I finally got round to sewing some more clothes for myself, and yesterday made another tunic top using cotton fabric, and I improved on the pattern a little bit making it more shaped, going in more at the waist and flaring out a little at the bottom, something I didn’t do on the first tunic top I made.
I loved this Tana Whelan fabric when I saw it on the roll at John Lewis, but in all honesty now that I’ve made the top I am not convinced it works, it seems a bit washed out and bedlineny.It’s funny how sometimes you cannot predict how something will look when it is finished based on the fabric you choose to start with. I know I have often experienced the opposite, where I haven’t really liked a fabric much on the roll, but when I make it into something it really works. Anyone else find that?
Perhaps it will grow on me, perhaps not, but I like the simple pattern of these tops, they are comfortable and feminine and so easy to make. I am considering writing a tutorial for making these if enough people are interested, so let me know if you would like the tutorial!
