Nightingale tunic

October 15, 2009

I’ve hat very little time to sew in the past couple of weeks, let alone to blog. But I did manage to sew this tunic for DD. It’s from Ottobre 4/2009. The fabric is a bordered cord, so I didn’t have to use a complementary fabric like in the magazine, I just cut against the grain, which made the pattern much simpler. For the bib, I used a remnant of this fabric. The buttons on the bib are not functional so I decided to mismatch them, just for fun. The tunic closes in the back with an invisible zipper. I like the details of this tunic, like the pin tucks under the bib or the small darts on the back of the shoulders. I finished it with french seams and had to learn the hard way that you can only finish the armhole with french seams if the arms are set in and not sewn on the flat. DD is happy with this one and so am I:
