washi tunic

9.28.2012


Yep, had to do it.  After my first Washi dress I couldn't fight the urge to make another one.

This time I had to go with a tunic.  And this lovely linen print, Essex Print La Femme Tonal Black by Robert Kaufman that I got over at Pink Chalk Fabrics.


I wore it to work today, pink cords and all.  It's super comfy.  I watched Rae's amazing videos (seriously, she's crazy talented) and did a partial lining.  It's so fun and I think it's easier than the facings and more comfy too perhaps.

I did lengthen the tunic and did a narrow rolled hem on the bottom.

Oh and my necklace is so rad, I bought it on etsy from Alina & T!  I call it my Katniss Everdeen necklace.

Have a great weekend!

  1. So pretty! :) I like partial linings better than facings too. It kind of makes me laugh when Ansley keeps pulling her facings up but I get it- they can be itchy and don't always stay in place. :)

  8. Very Cute! I love seeing you sew all of the apparel. It is so fun. I am venturing out and making a dress. I have the pattern, I have the material, now I just need to start working on it. Perhaps this coming week. Anyway, thanks for sharing. The tunic is very sweet and it goes very well with the cords.

  9. Looks lovely on you! I need to go check the video, I would much prefer doing a partial lining vs. the facings. My fabric was so thin I didn't want to tack them down, so they move around while wearing.

    Great job!
