Yet another version of MacPhee Workshop pattern # 336, 2 Hour Tunic.
I get sew inspired by simple patterns that I know will fit me!
The picture at the right showed up in my “inbox” one morning, yup, an advertisement, but it inspired me.
The fabric department had many hidden treasures, especially in garment fabrics. I found 2 pieces that went well together, both stretchy. The print is a stretch “beggar” with a black background and the dark is a stretchy ribbed velour in deep black. It would work for the neckband and armbands, too!
1 meter of the beggar and 1/2 meter of the velour got past my hubby and to the sewing room.
This variation would make great use of an out-of-style- sweater, too. I don’t have any, but dropped in at one of our local thrift shops and they had a few.
I also see it as a “deconstruction” project, and have all the seams on the outside.
Here’s my original tutorial of this pattern.
I’m putting together a tutorial, and will post it soon. Be sure to subscribe to sewwhatyvette, then you’ll know when I update the information. (top right of this page)
