Something for me

bohemian not-so-tunic


I want to make myself some tops for summer. This is the first one. It's from Ottobre Woman 05/09, #3 "Bohemian" knit tunic. When Otto says tunic, it means it! I ended up cutting quite a few inches off. In tunic length the top looked like a frumpy maternity top on me. The fabric was a cheapy Spotlight cotton jersey. I wouldn't say that I absolutely love it, but it fits well and is super comfy!

It sure looks supercomfy!

And, great job making something for yourself!! Somehow you always seems to forget about yourself when you make clothes, don't you??

It's easy to forget about myself. I find sewing for the kids so much more fun.

That's a gorgeous top Sara. I love it. Still waiting for your own Sara-dyed garment though!

I like sewing kid's clothes more too! Even though I need them more than she does...maybe it's because they're so small, and there's no figure issues to fit?

In any case, great job, you look great in it!!

Hej Sara, the top looks great and your smile even more.

And so you have to keep out of your yard, keep in your sewing room ;-)

Hope your home isn't submerged.

I love it on you Sara, and now you've tweaked it, you can try some out some 'special' fabric!
