As from next Tuesday I just have 6 more weeks left at dress making class before the end of the Adult Ed academic year. I'm seriously considering enrolling again next year as it seems to be the only time when I allow myself to make things for me. I've recently completed a tunic top that my sewing tutor will be pleased to hear, I've worn several times already. I like to layer it.
Look at my feet! A touch of the Mary Poppins methinks! Here's a closer look at the finished garment. It's made from fine knit in an olive green which is my favourite colour to wear.
I took the pattern from an existing tunic of mine but I added the little inverted pleats that create a soft drape at the front bodice. I've been playing around with printing photos onto fabric and decided to sew a label onto the outside of the tunic. It's a photo of my Grandma and her Mum so my Great Grandmother.
I know that I like to be colour co-ordinated, but this is ridiculous! My current knitting project matches my tunic top!
Until next time...
