Here are a couple of tunics that I made at Sewjourn last weekend (see previous post)
 I used one of Rachel's patterns from Ottobre which was actually a 'Top' pattern.
I made it wider in the centre front to make my gathers/pleats for a bit of interest, and just made the hem longer and a bit wider. I think they both turned out really well. I wasn't sure about the slinky fabric in the photo above, but once made it feels great.
 Rachel gave me this textured black knit fabric (gee, I'm a free loader aren't I?)
She didn't like it, I really liked it. But it turned out much harder to work with than I imagined. I had to unpick the arm and neck bindings umpteen times to get the fit right.
But, overall I am very happy with it, you can see the texture in the pic above.

Very nice Kathryn. I love a tunic or two for winter with my woolly leggings.

They both look gorgeous- well done. I love how that fabric print in the top one has turned out. And, do you speak Spanish?
