sew much fun

I've been bitten hard by the sewing bug from last weekend, because I had a sewing morning with a friend on Saturday, and then I felt encouraged to sew a tunic by myself on Sunday. I've had this pattern for some time, it was designed by a local designer from one of my favorite tunics. She was used to sew some pieces by request, but not anymore, so she gave some patterns she had designed for me. Finally, I've used my (few) sewing skills, even if I couldn't match the print along the seams, because I hadn't enough fabric to do it. This is quite dissapointing, but I'll try it next time!

Me ha dado fuerte por la costura desde el fin de semana, porque tuve una sesión de costura con una amiga el sábado, y luego ya me lancé a coser esta túnica yo sola el domingo. He tenido este patrón desde hace tiempo, me lo dibujó, a partir de una de mis túnicas favoritas, una diseñadora local, que solía coser algunas prendas a medida. Como ya no se va a dedicar a ello, me dió unos patrones que había dibujado para mí. Al final, decidí intentarlo con mis propias (pocas) habilidades costureras, aunque no pude casar el estampado en las costuras, porque no tenía tela suficiente, y eso me ha fastidiado un poco. Quizá la próxima vez!
Espero que os guste! (Enlazo al I Will Wear What I Like/'Me pondré lo que me plazca')

  1. That is a wonderful tunic, you did such a great job with the pleats and the big sleeves! Well done! xxx

  2. You did a great job on the tunic, Monica! I wouldn't be able to do that in a million years. I thought I recognized that fabulous fabric ... xxx

  3. Wow! You are so clever and have done a wonderful job! I love the tunic and pants and MJ's; you look fab! And not only the tunic did you make but matching pants, too. Brilliant.


  4. What a nice bug! :) I think you've done an amazing job with your tunic! It isn't always possible to match the pattern, so don't feel bad about it - even professionals miss it sometimes, especially if there isn't enough fabric, there is just not much you can do about it. Beautiful work! Love your colorful outfit, as always, very cool and very comfy - your trademark! <3

  5. Bravo Monica - excellent sewing job on the tunic. I would never have noticed you didn't match the pattern. That was so nice for the woman to give you the patterns she had designed for you.
