As a refresher, I started this journey with Vogue 8935, because this top will work with jeans or leggings.
Again I know this pattern wasn't well received when it first appeared in the pattern books and it's now OOP. However, I'm loving both versions of mine and may make another one. I love how adaptable it is to design changes especially since neither of my versions look like the pattern envelope.
Here are the supplies and notions again:
8 oz denim from Stylemaker Fabrics (I bought 10 yards of this so you're going to see quite a few garments this fall/winter made from this fabric)
My shirting from Fabric Mart is now sold out but here are some others.
5 - Mother of pearl shank buttons from the collection
Fusible interfacing from Fashion Supply Group
One elastic twist
All of the alterations and design changes were highlighted in the first post. This post is just to let you see the top in motion. In the pictures, I've worn it with my sneakers, RTW skinny jeans and tank top. How I will more than likely wear it to work. Yes, I now own quite a few pairs of sneakers that I wear to work along with a couple pair of shoe booties. Though I still miss wearing pumps and slingbacks...I should get over that already, right?! *LOL*
Here are a few more pics of the tunic ~
This is just the first of the "tailored denim" pieces that I will make this fall/winter. They will be interspersed with some other tops/blouses, vests, and toppers & jackets. However, this is one more garment to add to my new wardrobe!
In one of my last posts, I said that I was going to start sewing for my daughter during the Thanksgiving break. However, I worked from home Wednesday morning and ran errands Wednesday afternoon. Thursday was Thanksgiving which I spent with my family and for some reason Friday I watched Netflix ALL.DAY! I had no desire to sew and just vegged. On Saturday morning, I was still vacillating but after talking with my daughter (she agreed to come over on Sunday and cut out her own dresses) I went ahead and started a project for me.
So coming up soon on the blog will be garments for both of us. I just have to sew them! hahahahaha!
One last picture of the tunic...
...as always more later!
