I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. This post is about the tunic I made for Christmas Eve. I needed a simple project because between the decorating and baking I didn’t have much time to sew during the month of December.
I’ve had Vogue 9204 on my to-sew list for a while.
I like the statement sleeve trend and figured this pattern would be a great style to modify the sleeves.
I searched my pattern stash and chose to use the sleeve from Style Arc’s Harlow top. I omitted the split in the sleeve and sewed the seam all the way. I used French seams because the inside of the sleeves show when wearing the top.
I was relieved that the sleeves did not get in the way of eating, drinking, etc. I noticed that when I was using my arms the sleeves tended to fold back on themselves. The fabric is polyester crepe purchased at Fabrix in San Francisco.
I cut 1.5 inches off the bottom front to create a slight high-low hem.
My fashion photographer always makes me laugh while we’re taking pictures. I normally reject the pictures where I’m cracking up but I figured this was a good way to end my last blog post of the year.
As the New Year approaches I want to take this opportunity to wish you a New Year full of joy, peace and good health. May you be inspired to create and experience success in all of your projects.
