Here it is! I finished the BWOF 7/09 tunic and I have to admit, it was fun to make. I think I finally conquered my fear of chiffon. :-)
This is light and breezy, which is exactly what I was looking for. The shoulders are really wide, which makes the armholes ride down - aka "dropped shoulder" I think if I were to make this again, I would make the armholes much larger, especially if I were going to plan on wearing it over something else, like in this case. If you click on the picture, you can see that the fabric is totally see-through around my body, but you can really see the design over the black cami.
(Oh, these are the Kwik Sew cropped pants I wrote about in the last post.)
Here are some design details: I wasn't sure how I was going to hem this, so I decided to practice with my rolled hem foot. It turned out pretty well, but took me forever since I really went in slow motion on this. Hopefully practice will speed up the process in the future. I also did french seams (no pix)
The pattern called for a thread button loop and button on the inside of the top. I wanted my button to show, so put it on the outside.
I have so many things I want to sew right now and so little time! I think I may make a twin set next with a pattern from Pamela's Patterns:
