New Top & Giveaway!!

Giveaway Closed!
Last week, I made an adorable new tunic for me! My first project for myself! I used the Laurie Claire Tunic pattern from Seamingly Smitten...and I am definitely smitten with the results. The directions were so easy to follow and there were pictures for every step. This would be a great pattern for any beginner seamstress.

I HAD to use my new favorite color scheme...Gray and Yellow. Aren't you just loving everything with this combo?!? Stay tuned for a tutorial on how to make the adorable yellow flower tomorrow!

I would consider myself a moderately experience seamstress...and I finished this tunic in about 1 1/2 hrs. And I'm sure I was interrupted some in there too ;)

I was a little skeptical when I realized that there wasn't an actual pattern to trace or pin to your fabric, but I was amazed that you really didn't need one. And I loved that it was a PDF that was emailed to me...no wait for shipping! I'm truly a Seamingly Smitten believer :)
