Sew Liberated Schoolhouse Tunic

I'm not sure about this pattern. I ended up having to take it in so much even though I made according to my measurements, to make it a little more streamed lined I ended up sewing down the pleats also. Without that I felt like a ship in full sail!!

All in all it was an easy pattern to sew up and the instructions were really straight forward, just not totally convinced that it works on me. Maybe a softer fabric might be better, something like a light weight linen. I do love the fabric, it is from Patty Young's Andalucia range, the Birdie Damask. I still think I look like a ship in full sail...hence my nerdy "model" pose - hahaha


  1. I'm feeling your insecurity Karen. I would like to see it on you though (hint, hint) I have just sewn down my pleats as I think it is a good idea but now I think that I need to tweak it in a bit over the hips too. Toot! Toot!

  2. Wow, that is really eye catching. I mean it in a really good way too. LOL
