I stitched up this Schoolhouse Tunic a little while ago, but didn’t get to taking proper photographs until the other day. It’s my second version of this great pattern. I made the first one out of voile from the Greenfield Hills collection. I knew my second version would be done with Liberty of London and I’m so happy that I chose this spring-y Kate Ada print.
I tried out the gathered elastic sleeve for this version and I really like it!
I’ve had a busy start to the year with an unexpected project. I’ll finally be sharing some photos here very soon to show you what I’ve been up to for the last few months.
Speaking of Liberty of London, there’s a shipment due to arrive ANY day now (hopefully tomorrow) at the workroom full of Liberty of London Tana Lawn Cotton!!! It will be our biggest shipment of Liberty yet! You can sneak peek the prints that are arriving here. You can expect to see Liberty on our shelves on a regular basis now. Just in time for spring/summer wardrobe making!
One more piece of exciting news!! the workroom will be carrying Wiksten printed sewing patterns! I absolutely adore both the Tank pattern and the Tova pattern, so I’m over the moon that Jenny is making them available to us. Not only can you now buy these patterns locally, but look out for these projects as classes at the workroom very soon. The patterns will arrive in the next few weeks. I’ll let you know when they arrive.

That’s a beautiful version, that Liberty print is stunning. I’ve had the pattern for ages now but have never got round to doing it. Yours is lovely.

Love this! I need to come in soon and get you to help me pick out some fabric for a dress (and maybe another school house tunic after seeing this!) I’m horrible at picking fabric for clothes. What I love does not look good on me. :S

one word: wheeeeeeeeee!
Very exciting news!
Beautiful! I have had this pattern for a while now and have been too intimidated to try it. But after my success with the Wiksten tank, I think I am one step closer to giving it a shot.

Hi Just found your blog, such a breath of fresh air. Lovely to see such lovely handcrafted things,
That looks really breathtaking! Such a gorgeous detailed tunic! I wish I could get it. It’s elegant, sexy, beautiful, feminine and looks casual at the same time. I am totally assured by your review.
