I am so happy to be back behind the sewing machine! Morning sickness was kicking my butt, but now I’m full of energy (for the time being!) and wanted to share some sewing I’ve done.
A few months ago I bought this beautiful euro sweatshirt knit from L’Oiseau Fabrics. It is so incredibly soft inside, and is a pleasure to work with. I used Ottobre 1/2014 #22 to make a simple cozy tunic for my daughter.
The tunic features a fun pointed hemline, two pockets, and a exposed zipper. I found Ottobre’s instructions for an exposed zipper a bit odd; next time I’ll just do it the way I am used to.
I’m so happy with how the great euro fabric, plus the simple Ottobre design, work together to make a practical yet fun outfit for my daughter to wear to school!
