Somehow I always end up last on my priority list. Shop, kids, household, myself... But, for my birthday I decided to make something for me!
I bought fabric from Tygaffären (=my favourite local fabric shop) looooong time ago for this tunic. And then I wanted to draw a pattern for it. But, then I saw a pattern from Mariya Muschard, that was very similar to the thing I wanted. So I bought a pattern from there some time in September. But, I never got around sewing anything...
So, when I opened it, I realized that it was for knit fabrics only, and the lower part of the tunic is woven cotton, which means that I had to adjust it a little bit. Around the neck I used one of those lacy elastics that are common for underwear, and then I added some lace cuffs.
I have a tunic from the danish brand Container that is very similar to this one, and the woven fabric is actually one of the fabrics that they have used in their collection.
It was fun and actually pretty fast to sew, so I think I might treat myself to a couple more birthday gifts. Perhaps not today though... It's my daughter that is dancing with me, wearing one of the cloud dresses I made for her.
How old I am? Well. I know I turned 30, and then I had my kids, and I am still not 40. So, it has to be somewhere in between.
Besides, don't you know that you aren't supposed to ask for the age of a woman?!!
