I saw a pattern for a tunic top over at Purl Soho and knew it would be a perfect top for my friend, Kim. She agreed. It was quick and easy, and I love top-stitching, so it was a fun sewing experience for me.
One yard of handkerchief linen in the color driftwood (purchased here).
Free pattern at Purl Soho found here.
Ivory cotton thread.
I have only worked with the medium weight linens, so working with this lighter weight linen was a new experience for me. A very pleasant one, as it was a dream to work with!
The tunic top fits Kim perfectly!

I have a few ideas for some modifications...we shall see how they work out when next I make one of these. Though the measurements are given for only 5 sizes, it would be super easy to adjust them to make any size needed.
This is one of the two projects I mentioned in my previous post that needed to be done. The other project is finished, but I am waiting for it to be delivered before I show it.
I actually made a few small things this week. Sometimes, simple straight sewing is just what I need to be doing. A lot of that going on around here, lately. But, that's okay.
Here are a few more zippy pouches and kleenex cozies (I know...not too exciting!)
|I made these ~5x6, so a cell phone could easily fit into them.|
Tag continues to hold his own. Nothing new.
Have a good day!
