Just in time for the weekend, my ‘wildwoman’ tunic is finished! I was a bit concerned how wide the neckline would turn out, but went ahead and sewed it ‘as is’ and was presently surprised that it didn’t slide off my shoulders as many people had stated on Pattern Review (I may have had a better fit than most because my shoulders are rather broad). I love the ruching along the left side seam (and the shoulder seam), but I believe that the print of the fabric hides most of this detail. The fit is good, although a bit on the snug side, so if you’re looking for something with a bit more ease, I’d recommend going up one side on the lower portion of the shirt. Overall, I’m thrilled with my new tunic – it’s time to pair it up with some leggings and a great pair of boots!
I recently looked inside my closet and determined that it needed new life. While I love what’s inside, but it just needs some new topspants to change things up. I rummaged though my patterns and decided to give KwikSew 3790 a try. This particular pattern has been in my stash for quite some time, but I never sewed it up. The main reason I haven’t given it a try? That neckline. I love the asymmetrical style, but I can also see that it may be too large for my frame. I’m going to go ahead and sew this one right out of the package anyway and give it a try. For the fabric, I picked a fun “Why you little minx” print from Gorgeous Fabrics – a bold print with a mix of cheetah, fur, and snakeskin designs.
