I picked up a "simple" tunic pattern a while back. I've been wanting to make something for me for ages.
At first glance I figured that no buttons or zippers was akin to easy peasy.
I didn't account for how much fussing that upturned collar and associated facing would take.
Sewing grown ups clothing is so much more cumbersome than making things for little people. Laying out. Cutting. Stitching. It all takes more time and effort. I must admit, I got a bit over it.
I'm fairly happy with how this turned out, though. A bit sack like, but I don't mind that in a frock. My husband said it needed a belt, but I don't really do decorative belts. Feel like a bit of a try hard.
I've worn it a couple of times. Got a few "I like your dress. Did you make it?" It's the second part of the comment that worries me. All things I make for me seem to be so obviously handmade. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I guess.
My first play with a tripod and the self timer. I think the macro setting is much more my thing.
Go and enjoy more handmade goodness over here.
