This was my Blip photo for today.

Yesterday I should really have  been working on “arty” stuff I guess, but I took a break to make a tunic.  It took a few goes to tweak the pattern so that it actually fitted me – sort of at least.  The front wraps over, not too clear here.

Back panel and sleeve edges from a different fabric.

Then today I made a variation, not a wrap front, but fabric panels in the side.  Decided this fabric didn’t work and changed it.

Just have to finish pinning the hems tonight to sew tomorrow.

    Fab tunics, and what a useful pattern. Well done on such production in adverse circumstances.

    Love these tunics – I have a similar pattern from Indygo Junction. they are such fun to make using a mix of fabrics for sleeves and panels. Really love the bold florals in both of these.

    Missed you last post, so see comment below for your wonderful photos.

    Love the fabrics you've used for the tunics, Helen, and what a great idea to use more than one. Can you tell me where you obtained your pattern?
