Happy Monday, I hope everyone has a good start into the new week. I started mine with a little bit of fabric shopping, what better way is there?
Yesterday, my kids took a really good nap, and since the house was clean and the laundry folded, I did a little bit of selfish sewing. I bought the Washi pattern the day Rae came out with it, and then it sat there in my sewing room and I never got around to making it. I also had two yards of Anna Maria Horner's Loulouthi fabric sitting around.
Time + pattern + fabric =
A new tunic for me!
Yes, it could have gone terribly wrong to use to good fabric at the first try, but thankfully, it didn't. I'm happy with how it turned out. It fits well, I only had to take in the sides a bit. There was a bit too much fabric there and from the side I looked quite pregnant (which is never nice when you are actually not!)
It's a great pattern, well written and sews up fast. I attached the facing on the outside (okay, I admit that was by mistake, but I like the look of it!)
Together with a mustard cardi, burgundy corduroy pants and boots, it's a nice fall outfit!
I think I should warn you already, you might see a few of those popping up here over the next few weeks...
