Red Silk Tunic Finished



Here is a photo of the finished red silk tunic. made from red charmeuse from Gorgeous Fabrics. The pants are the black RPL from Timmel Fabrics.
Whew,
I am really glad to be finished!
Having ambitious plans with a deadline is a double-edged sword. I got a lot done but now I am kinda tired of all the work involved!
I am not as keen on deadlines at the moment!! I will still sew the rest of my pieces for the pattern review contest, but if I don't finish by April 30, no problemo!
Doesn't this look like a party top for the holidays? I bet I will wear it a lot in 6 months from now.
It it time for light pretty summer clothes now.

  11. Great looking wardrobe, Robin. I know exactly what you mean about deadlines, and in fact, I dropped out of the PR wardrobe contest even though I probably could have finished. I just can't deal with any deadlines (except those I HAVE to that are not self-imposed.) Good luck in the SWAP

  15. Gorgeous tunic (Gorgeous Fabrics indeed!), and it looks lovely with your pants. I think I have the same black RPL from Timmel Fabrics.

    I didn't finish my SWAP, decided that I needed to get fitting down before making an entire wardrobe. Next year. Congratulations on getting yours done, in such a smashing way.
