Burda 08-2008-118 Tunic Top

  1. How much do you love this fabric????? It's a lightweight sweater knit from the Farics and Notions coop that I mentioned in this post.
  2. The tie does match, really.
  3. Got the haircut. Really like it. I may go back in a couple of weeks and get it a bit shorter.
  4. The second girl coat died. I realized that I put the front together incorrectly. I started to seam rip it. Big hole. Oops. I'll make another one and, really, I'm not that sad about it. Probably I just need a break from that pattern.





It's hard to get a decent picture of this fabric.

Wow! What a great choice of fabric for the tunic pattern. What kind of fabric is it? I once purchased some texture fabric but it was a synthetic that seemed a bit itchy and the fibres bothered my nose as I sewed! :)

Dawn, what a great use of the fabric. I bought some of it and had no idea what to do with it. Now I have an idea. :-)

That is so yummy looking fabric. I try to ignore Ressy's emails becasue I need no temptation right now. That being said, if you see more cool sweater knits she's offer - let me know ASAP! :-) The color looks great on you too!

Sometimes I think I'm losing my flipping mind. I would have sworn I commented on this. I LOVE IT. LOVE the purple sweater knit, perfect for this pattern.
