Today I’m excited to share a project from a book written by my friends at the popular sewing blog, Sew Can She. I love their site and the wonderful projects they produce and share. If you haven’t ever been over there, you need to be sure and check it out.
Their newest publication, Just for You Sewing, is full of projects for the entire year, for YOU! The book is separated into 12 chapters (one for each month of the year) with project to correspond. I’m sharing the Saturday Night Tunic from the August chapter today. ((One of the great things about this book is that there are pull-out patterns for you to use- you don’t have to hassle with PDFs!))
Be sure to read the whole post for a chance to win a copy of this book!
This pattern is meant to be sewn with woven fabric, but since I am almost 32 weeks pregnant, I was a little nervous to sew something to wear that isn’t a knit. SO, I didn’t change a bit about the pattern and simply sewed it in a knit fabric. I chose to sew a size medium, which corresponds with my pre-pregnancy measurements, and since I sewed it in a knit, it fits perfectly. The only other change I made was knocking off about 3″ from the hem so I could wear it with shorts. Can’t wear jeans while pregnant and living in 100+ degree weather!!! The fabric I used for this top is the Utopia collection by Frances Newcombe for Art Gallery fabrics.
