Ottobre Woodstock Tunic




Here is the tunic I cut out last weekend...seems things are pretty slow around here! The fabric is from a group of half yard pieces I bought on etsy--not sure the design or the seller, as it has been aging in the stash for a while. Due to the aging process, the grand daughter has grown...I had to do a little cheating in making the fabric fit the pattern. The polka dot piece at the bottom of the front and back pieces was a small change I made to make the fabric stretch! The pants I'm making are out of stretch no wale corduroy in a chocolate brown. This is a size 122 and the pants that will coordinate with it are about half done. I like the bright colors that still have a fall/winter feel. This pair of garments appealed to me because they are described as slim fit, and DGD is pretty slim--not skinny, but always needs to have the buttonhole elastic pulled tight in RTW garments.
I think I am going to put this in the pile of things headed for Christmas gifts--after I finish the coordinating "neat beat" pants, I think I will make a few pairs of PJs for the kids for Christmas too.
I hope to get a photo in the morning and then I'll publish this post!
