Howdy, y’all! Stefanie here for the Blank Slate Sewing Team. Happy (early) Holidays, too!!!
Today, I am showing off my Rose T-Shirt! But really, it should be called the Rose Tunic. I'm a shorty, so dresses are notoriously too long but tunics fit just right. So, I opted to lengthen the shirt pattern by a few inches. I'm quite pleased with my results. For the main fabric, I chose a Robert Kaufman Ponte. It is deliciously heavy and has the promise to keep me warm.
This month, the Melly Sews theme is embellishment. I had an inkling of what I wanted to do but I wanted to embellish my t-shirt without looking like Liberace. Therefore, I chose to make the contrasting yoke with Liberty of London Tana Lawn. If you haven't had a chance to sew this with coveted fabric, I highly recommend it. It is quite pricey, though; plan wisely and save each scrap!
I added a scarf into the mix later. Detachable embellishment, for the win!
Okay kids, gotta scoot. Both my laundry and dryer went off at the same time (boo, hiss). Thanks for reading!!
