It’s no secret that I love to sew! I got into sewing a few years ago when I got a sewing machine for my birthday. This was just after my second daughter turned 7 months old. I’m a stay at home mom, and I found that crafting and sewing gave me a creative outlet and things that I could actually finish and accomplish on a day to day basis.
Don’t get me wrong, I love being at home with my girls, and wouldn’t trade it for anything. But it’s a never ending job and things like dishes, laundry, and cleaning are never completely done or finished, maybe for a few minutes and then they are not finished anymore.
So sewing, crafting, and making jewelry have been a great way to be creative and something I wish I had started when I was younger.
I wanted to share one of my favorite patterns, the Patricia Tunic by Sis Boom.
This is my favorite shirt pattern by Sis Boom. I absolutely love how comfortable this tunic is and the fit is fantastic! This pattern is very detailed with great pictures for every step. The best part is you can print off your size and not have to piece all the sizes together and then cut your size afterwards (like most pdf pattens).
I’ve made two tunics so far and hope to make one more this winter/spring. I made both of my tunics in Amy Butler fabrics. The blue tunic is made in Amy Butler’s Lark Dreamer Ivy Bloom Cobalt Blue. The purple/orange tunic is in Amy Butler’s Love Sandlewood Tangerine.
I followed the directions exactly for this pattern except, I did shorten the side vents and did a slightly gathered sleeve. I love how it turned out!
I’m in a group on Facebook called the Scientific Seamstress Lab Group and it’s wonderful to share your finished projects and even to ask questions or get help with the Sis Boom/ Scientific Seamstress patterns!
