Woohoo! I was on a roll last week and I'm so glad I planned ahead. This week is a doozy! Lala is taking her morning nap, so I have a quick moment to share with you today...
I have a confession... I'm a fabric hoarder. I LOVE fabric. Thank goodness I'm poor, 'cause that's what keeps me at bay for the most part. I had bought this fabric about two years ago. LOVE it. Had no clue what I was going to do with, but I wanted it. So as I was rummaging through my stash, trying to find that right fabric for the tunic in mind, there it was... like a ray of ethereal light shining through the piles of glorious textiles.
"Ahhh... yesss! This is the one!"
Funny how things work out. ***wink***
So after sewing the tunic (which was another quick sew to my surprise), I realized the cuff is sized for "delicate" wrists. Aaaack! Dagnabit... what the heck?! Lala is a "healthy" girl and there ain't nothing delicate about her wrists. So Improvised. Clever, ay?
And here's the pattern used for the top. Again, an easy pattern and quick to sew. My only gripe is that I'm not too fond of the collar. I think I need to open it up a bit... a bit more "rounder" in the opening.
I'll be using this again as well.
Okie-dokie my friends, my time is running out and soon my boss will be calling for me. Until then...
