A tall order indeed.
So, with that goal in mind, in February I got brave and made myself an Aberdeen tunic out of French terry fabric. It was NOT a 100% success, but I learned a lot and it turned out well enough that I wore it IN PUBLIC a number of times, so it definitely counts.
|I added 6" to the length of this tunic and cut it in a 2x to get the look I wanted.|
|See that weird rumple? I couldn't resolve it...it bugs me!!|
|Look at how clean that looks...|
|Look at those bands meeting perfectly in the back...just gorgeous!|
|A steady hand sewed those parallel lines!|
|New sleeve...3" added.|
|Completed (again!) with longer sleeves.|
