I don't sew tunics often, because the length feels awkward to me. It seemed a good idea to try again; maybe I will like a tunic if I give it another try. Here is my version of the Style Arc Pleated Pia Top:
|I raised the neckline to make it peek-proof.|
|I might make it even longer next time. After I've worn this|
for a while, I'll know whether there are more tunics in my future.
|Guess I could add a center back seam |
so I can do a sway back adjustment (to reduce
the folds at waistline). On the other hand,
maybe good enough is good enough.
As I altered the pattern, I did not take a lot of photos because I had a mild cold & lacked the energy for a full-blown alteration tutorial. I'll do it on another top soon. The fabric is a rayon knit jersey. I bought this piece at Mood Fabrics in NYC. It tested my patience (I find the slippery flimsiness a challenge) but it is a joy to wear.
*** oh! The doorbell just rang! My new gravity feed iron is here!! I have been using the cheapest iron I could find (only $7.99!) after my steam generator iron recently died. ***
Today is my favorite type of vacation day. I accrue enough vacation days that I can take the occasional off for errands and chores. It is a luxury to play housewife for the day.
Hope your day has a touch of luxury, too.
