Now Playing Tracks

Here’s the sewing project I posted about earlier. It’s a loose tunic/tee made of printed cotton viscose. I found the fabric in a sale bin at the local fabric store, and I knew I had to make something of it. It combines two of my favourite things: trees and the sea. The pattern is from Suuri Käsityö magazine 5-6/2014. The original pattern has longer sleeves, but I left them out and just hemmed the armholes, because it looked better to me that way.

I’m so happy with the result. I know there are a number of little mistakes in there, and I really struggled with some things, but I don’t mind. My sewing skills aren’t that great yet, and I learned a lot from this project.

Maybe I’ll post a pic of myself wearing this some day, when the weather isn’t quite so hot.
