Spring Tunic

It’s about that time – I’m tired of sewing things for winter which means I’m moving onto spring! Since I won’t be pregnant in 59 more days (not that I’m counting), I’ve started thinking about post-maternity wear. Kwik Sew 3467 seemed to fit the bill. The tunic style is in fashion, but will also hide the post-delivery belly and the sleeveless version will work well into summer. After spending the afternoon sewing, here’s the finished top:

No Shopping For February?

Yesterday could have been better – Taylor was sick, the weather outside was horrible (another blizzard), and worst of all, someone vandalized Bret’s car. He walked outside only to find the front windshield smashed and the driver’s side window completely gone – and the car filled with snow. To make matters worse, 1) we just replaced the front windshield of our other car due to a crack in the windshield and 2) it’s all out of pocket since the cost to repair it is under the cost of our deductible. BAH!
Consequently, I’m putting myself on a sewing notionfabricmagazine ration (I would say book, but it’s too late for that, we had already placed an Amazon order and I picked out Sew Everything Workshop). I’m going to attempt to sew from my stash of goodies for the month – I’m excited to see how much I can dwindle down my fabric stack(s). For starters, I’ve got Kwik Sew 3467 traced and on the sidebar. Since this is a non-maternity style top I’ve opted to make view B, the sleeveless tunic to wear this springsummer after I deliver. I’ve decided to use a burgundyred jersey with bits of gold metallic lame throughout (I believe I originally purchased this at Hancock Fabrics last year for a Burda WOF top that I never got to).
What are you all going to work on this weekend?
