Summer Sewing Has Begun!
However, I have finally finished a tunic shirt for summer! Love the fabric. It is a cotton lawn. Although it can show wrinkles (see picture), the comfort factor wins. This fabric is sooooo light weight, it calls, no screams to made into something light and a bit boho. The pattern was Simplicity 2586 ( Cynthia Rowley ). It was pretty easy, the only modification I made was on the arm hole. I used FOE (fold over elastic) rather than a finished sleeve. I love that idea and it very comfortable (and forgiving!). I think I will that method again on my next top. I can another one of these making its way into the summer wardrobe. Yes indeed.
