Parallel Lines

My eyes are going together......all that black and white, big stripes, little stripes, spots and dots and parallel lines. See here if you've no idea what I'm talking about.

Tunic 3 done

































Cardigan tunic to match done. Exact same pattern pieces except all the front bits were cut on the selvedge edges and trimmed with a bias strip of spots: all the back pieces cut on the fold. I added another piece to the sleeves to make them full length instead of 3/4 - no closures though - think I'll use a brooch.




And a bonus draped T-shirt into the bargain. 
So that's three tunics, a cardigan (which is really another tunic), a T-shirt and two pair of trousers (not the white ones in the pic - they're very old RTW). Not bad for about £35, a bit of time and lots of experimenting with fabric patterns.

    1. Thanks Linda. You look like you're pretty busy with all those blogs and sewing but isn't Owen Meaney the best ever read? Take a look at A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole - if you haven't already - wonderful!

  5. PL is the first album I ever got (if you don't count my Muppet Show records...) and it's still the sexiest album cover I've ever seen! What a great inspiration Debbie Harry is. Hope you enjoy wearing these new additions to your wardrobe.
