I'm officially back!

9:45 PM

Well, I say "officially" because I've been home for almost 3 weeks, but I'm just getting back into the sewing groove. I needed something sorta easy to jumpstart the mojo. So I picked this:


Project Details:


Pattern Sizing: 10 - 24; I cut the 14

I made this using a white tissue weight linen, which I felt was the perfect weight for this type of tunic. I didn't have to do a FBA, but I did lengthen it by 2 inches. I wanted a true tunic style. I really love the bib front and the shirt-tail style hem. And I also used French seams.


I accessorized it with a multi-color strip necklace and turquoise necklace that I bought at a shop near me. And my silver hoop earrings, stacked bangles, a red skinny belt and red Dolce Vita wedges.

Being that it was 100 degrees today, I couldn't imagine wearing this with anything other than my Old Navy 5" shorts!
