Escaping Winter at the Sewing Machine: The Beach Cover up Tunic!

” Take me away, a sweet escape… take me away to brighter days” Natasha Bedingfield

These two Tunics were made for two friends. I can definitely see me sewing a few more of these for the summer. So cool and also chic.

As mentioned in the previous blog I am escaping the winter blues at my sewing machine. Love the fabric, it was easy to sew and  draped beautiful. It is a sheer mesh type stretch material.( You guys know me and getting these fabric names right) I will enquire more on my next fabric store visit.

Both friends were very happy. And I am too 🙂

  1. Beautiful fabric, whether on its own as a cover up or worn elsewhere with another top underneath. I always ask and write down the name and content of the fabric I buy now – sometimes I love it so much I want more and I can’t remember what it was! It helps me learn too! So far, the salespeople have been very nice helping me.

  2. I love these cover ups they are so beautiful and I love how you add the belt and jewelry to dress it up, so clever. I have only sewn once with airy fabric and it was a night mare to sew! You did a great job.

  3. The sun just came out! I can’t wait for summer to arrive. Nice work, how did you finish the neck line? It looks really crisp and clean!
