A little Fashion Sewing

Hi all

   This past weekend I ventured out of quilting zone and did a little garment sewing. It was really fun to stretch out of my comfort zone! I worked on two tunic style tops from Indygo Junction Patterns. The patterns were very easy to follow and made up so fast. The first one was this Urban Tunic, great to pair with a pair of leggings or layer the top with a nice knit shirt. This pattern will be very comfortable to wear. Both the featured patterns come in sizes Xsmall- XXLarge. No zippers on the cowl neck style and nice little hidden pockets, such a nice design. I decided to use a red and cream linen dot. This fabric has a great drape and weight for this pattern. As you can see the garment turned out great.

   The second garment was another slip on tunic top and just as easy. This one has a nice little contrast detail. I used 100% cotton and loved the results. This top can be made in various lengths and also with the option for long or short sleeves. The fabric is Sarsaparilla from Riley Blake.

  Well I hope that you have some time to stretch your wings and try something new! It is a great way to expand your skills and also get you re-inspired with your current projects.

Have a great day!
