Ruffles and roses
May I present what is, on my opinion, the cutest tunic I’ve made so far! I used the pattern Shy eyes from Ottobre 6/2016 magazine as I have done before and cute floral viscose jersey with some added trims and frills from light orange viscose jersey. I always have felt awkward combining different patterns and colors but I think this time I succeeded very well.
The orange jersey I had in storage was meant for something else but the colour fits perfectly with the colour of the roses in the main fabric. The tunic was also really easy to sew and my fingers are itching for me to continue making more of these.
This tunic was one of the last pieces that I’ll make with using a double needle for the edgings, for I have a new toy! I bought Janome CoverPro 2000CPX as a treat for myself and hope to achieve a more professional finishing after I get really acquainted with it. This far I still struggle a bit with skipped stitches but I am making progress!
S likes to wear the tunic with leggings. She was also determined to do the hairstyling for the backyard photoshoot by herself. To be honest, her twisted braids are super cute!
