Photo of my latest tunic, which will be going straight in the wardrobe, and won’t be worn until next year.
Made using NewLook 6086 (again) because I needed a pattern with the front piece cut on the fold, so I didn’t have to worry about pattern matching. A very simple tunic, with slits up both sides. Only 3 pattern pieces and then binding for neck and armholes. I’ve still got loads of feather fabric left . . . but never fear, it won’t go to waste!
And, just so my cross stitching followers don’t think I’ve given up on cross stitch of late . . .
This is the small project I’m currently working on. “Sugar Skull” a Design Works Craft Inc kit. It came with 14 count aida, but I’m stitching on 20 count, still in 2 threads, to keep colours very vibrant and have the design stitch up a lot smaller. On 20 count, skull is going to measure 3.5” x 4.5” (as opposed to 5” x 7”). I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with it when it’s finished . . . I just like the design, which is why I bought it!
