Another spring top! I’m on a sewing-for-me roll and this is my new Cappuccino Tunic from Liesl + Co. I made my first top using this pattern and suffered a fabric/sizing fail but the second try went without a hitch!
I made this with a cotton voile print from Tula Pink. I’ve had this fabric in my stash for ages waiting for just the right pattern. The neck band is Pure Solids organic quilting cotton in Cherry from Robert Kaufman. The top is so light weight and breezy, it’ll be perfect on hot days.
The pattern is very straightforward and went together easily. There’s a center panel in the front that gathers into the bottom of the neck band. This gives it just enough detail and fullness without being too much volume. Oh boy, cotton voile is so dreamy to wear! I see much more sewing with it in my future.
And now for a gratuitous sandal shot! Apparently my photographer didn’t get the memo that I wanted my cute new sandals in the shot with my top. I had to take matters (and the camera) into my own hands to show you my new Saltwaters.
I’m having such a good time making myself clothing, I don’t know why I had taken such a long break from it. Do you sew clothing for yourself? What do you enjoy sewing?
