{ Happy Sewing } Festive Tunic

Posted by on May 15, 2015 in { Happy Sewing }, Blog, Festive Forest

I created this tunic for my daughter as soon as I received yardage of FESTIVE FOREST last December and feel it is a good example of how the collection lends itself not only to quilting and home decor projects, but also to clothing.

It is sewn from the Audrey Dress pattern from Violette Field Threads in Festive Nest in Snow

While I’m not one that goes for overly Christmassy clothing, I wanted to offer fabrics with a little nod to the holidays that would be appropriate for a fun skirt, dress or top and definitely for pyjamas. And because the prints are not overly holiday-themed, Em decided to wear it to school today, smack in the middle of Spring. It looked just right with a pair of jeans and the trees in full bloom in the gardens on our morning walk.
