Market Tunic

12 Mar

The other week, I felt like I was sewing for spring.  I suppose this weekend, I’m sewing for summer.

Using Robert Kaufman fabric I purchased at JP Knit and Stitch last weekend, I made a short sleeved version of the Lisette Market Tunic (Simplicity 2211).

I went down two sizes for the tunic and took in the chest area.  I also used 5/8 inch buttons instead of the 1/2 inch buttons as suggested by the pattern.  Those were only pattern modifications I made.  I like the way the tunic turned out.   Now, all I need is some warmer weather.

It is still a bit chilly in Boston,  but I’ll be able to wear my new warm-weather tunic during an upcoming business trip to California. Summer weather (well, at least warmer weather) here I come.

I suppose I should have ironed the crease out of the sleeve armband before this photo was taken. Details. Details.

    Love it! It’s so cute! I’m looking forward to warmer weather as well. Have fun on your trip!

    Love this – it is definitely giving a different look to that pattern with the single fabric instead of as pictured on the pattern package. I really like it this way. 🙂

    This is very nicely done. It’s quite flattering on you.
