Current sewing projects

When my local Fabricland closed last year, I took advantage of their sale to purchase lots of patterns, which I'm only now starting to work on. This tunic is New Look's 6677. I found a really nice lightweight cotton, making this an ideal sleeveless tunic for summer. This pattern includes different variations of the same tunic, allowing for lots of personal customization.

Love the split side seam (very comfy) and the
detail of the front neckline panels. It was fairly quick and
easy to make, except the front neckline panels were a bit
tricky because I hadn't made them like that before; it meant
some careful lining up - pay attention
to those dots on the pattern!

Next up, some skirts and a top from New Look's 6981.
