The Road Trip Sewing Club, Sis Boom Tortola Tank, by Carla, the Scientific Seamstress I knew it was going to be perfect. The pattern actually called for 2 yards as it's cut on the bias, but since Liberty is 57" wide I was able to get an XS out of it. (Though I did have to move to the studio, out of the kittens way, to cut my fabric.)
Then, I was a good girl and made a muslin, which is wearable, but maybe a little boring on me. So, I made a few mods: Made the shoulder straps 1/4 inch narrower, which opened up the arc of the neckline a bit, then I added in the option of the Notched neckline, which was challenging and did not come out perfectly, but I like it anyway, and finally I smoothed out the hip "bump" as it wasn't hitting me in the right place. I did decide that it's perfect with my Mudra Necklace, so I still get to wear some knitting!
My dear friend Betz is the mastermind behind The Road Trip Sewing Club... it's a super fun concept and I'm loving being on it... can't wait to see what the next pattern by Liesl Gibson is!
And next I made another Laurel Tunic, as one is not enough! I bought 1.5 yards of Liberty Jersey (on sale) this time, so I could make both the length and the sleeves longer. I think you'll be seeing me wearing this at workshops this fall... ALOT! It's one of those dresses that is so comfortable that it makes you feel like you are wearing your pajamas!
So, yeah, at least I can show you my sewing right now, cause the knitting???? That's super super super secret!
