G · Paperwhites · Sewing · Stylish Dress Book Sudden interest in spoon December 10, 2012December 10, 2012 pennylibrarian Just for your delectation I spent a good 20 minutes one sunny Sunday morning trying to recreate the ‘Tunic G’ garment shot from the ‘Stylish Dress Book’. Can you spot any differences?! Tunic ‘G’ – me Tunic ‘G’ – her I do know why they have the model in grey underthings, it’s so jolly tricky to capture the beauty of black. I do not know why she’s doing the weird cutlery thing, that spoon and her hand are at very odd angles. Relief at the end of a grueling spoon holding session A few close-ups for you? Back, before gather extraction I did have to tinker with the gathers. I had the neckline way too taut and too high and stuffed into very narrow grosgrain ribbon. Not a good idea. I had to bite the bias bullet and do what it said on the tin. Before – garroting by gathers After – self bias bliss Not sure that I will escape adding the suggested fourth button as it’s a bit droopy at the top there. I’m also not sure that I will return to this pattern. If I did, it would have to be in another sheer or at least very fluid fabric. You see, it’s roomy/casual/fashionably loose even after having cut a 6 with no seam allowances. I haven’t been a 6 on the hips since I was 6. If it were constructed in anything other than fabric with terrific drape it would hang like a sack on the lowliest of house elves. Something I fear muchly in my home-crafted garb. And for the gardeners and botanists amongst you, a Paperwhite update: Pot Shots! Week Deux And WordPress? Love the updates to the media library and general photo mangling. Not so sure about the snow that I’ve chosen to inflict upon my site. Looks a little like dandruff. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

I love yours! Please don’t pour strange liquid down the front like I think she is threatening to do!
I imagine it’s polyjuice potion or something equally destructive to clothing 😉
So many garments have I lost to such….
Your snow is cute, and I love the fabric you have used for the tunic, very pretty!
Thanks! I do quite like the snow although I worry it’s just a little twee 🙂 Loving the fabric of the tunic, right up my transparent street. Just need to work out what to wear it with and if I can get away with it at work, hmm.
