KCWC: the sadie tunic
This girl is having too much fun posing her heart out this week! She's earning tons of squinkies, too, so she's in heaven pretty much. So for this tunic I used Shauna's fantastic Sadie tunic pattern. It was just a matter of time til I sewed up this one...after all it has a great name! ;)
The fabric is Josephine Kimberling Just Dandy in Scattered Dots Blue Jay and the solid is the turquoise Bella solid from my fab sponsor the Ribbon Retreat!
I love the welt pockets! Confession: they were my first welt pockets I've ever sewn. Oh so easy, too! Rory wandered in while I was doing them and was confused by them...lol. That was before I added the pocket piece so it was basically two holes in the front of the tunic. Can't blame the guy I guess!
I sewed up the 2/3T size and it's a little big on the Sadester. (nothing new here she's kind of a string bean with a BIG noggin....Charlotte too...my little "bobbleheads", I call them) It was a pretty quick sew and of course turned out lovely. (I love Shwin & Shwin patterns!) It'll look so cute with some brown leggings and a white long sleeved tee once it gets cold. Which it's finally starting to here in NorCal...yay!
