School House Tunic

Luscious Green Yummy Anna Maria Horner Voile came into the shop and I bought some! Amazingly enough it didn't just sit on my fabric shelf... I actually made something with it! With the School House Tunic craze kicking in everywhere I decided to join in. So that yummy luscious green voile became this:



The original pleating in the tunic wasn't too flattering on me, so rather than take the whole thing back apart to omit them, I decided to sew them all the way down. I really love the little bit of detail it adds, not to mention the fact that I don't look like a balloon!



Not too crazy about this last open mouth photo, but it shows how the sewn down pleating looks. The scary laugh is thanks to Corinnea and Kelly who put me through this crazy photo shoot. Lots of fun though!

You're gorgeous all the time and stunning when you laugh. Stop rolling your eyes, it's true.

Love love love your top. Very nicely done. The sewn down pleats add a fun and unexpected detail.

Love it!

This is so beautiful and inspiring!! I HAVE to make this! I want cap sleeves though. I think that's why I've put this project off. The sleeves ON ME are not a favorite. and we all know how much I hate being hot!

i love love love the photos of you! They came out good of all three of you (not all 3 photos of you ,although they are good, I mean you 3: kelly, Corinnea and You!). It looks like you had fun! it's so hard posing.
