Piper Tunic Update

img_07271.jpgWardrobe by Me and the designer Christina has been a favorite of mine since she first showed up on the Facebook scene. I’ve tested many patterns and also have a lot of them I haven’t sewn up yet. The Piper Boho Tunic is one of those I hadn’t tried, so when Christina put out a tester call to update Piper, I was excited to participate. My fabric is from stash and was approved by Christina since she was going for a certain look. There are three views to choose from with different details, sleeve options, and even a dress option. There are 27 variations, wow! I had enough fabric that I chose long sleeves to use up the piece. That means it will be quite a while before I”ll be able to wear it in Arizona!

View A was my choice because of the shirring detail. I think it looks interesting! The pattern was a breeze to sew up and the shirring detail was easier than expected.

Of course, once my Piper was done, it needed a new pair of Haute Skinny Pants. My original pair is a faded black from so much wear. I tested these way back when with my daughter being the model. I never thought I would ever wear this style of pants. Surprisingly, these pants fit me well right off the printer, making them a quick sew for pants!

It’s so hard to photograph dark colors! Hopefully, you can see how well these fit. The fabric is a nice navy stretch denim. They will be worn a lot this fall and winter!

Here are details straight from the listing:

US 0-24 & EU 30-54. Height 5’6″ 172 cm.

The Piper Boho Tunic Sewing Pattern is a simple tunic with a flattering shape. The pattern is designed with several body lengths and neckline finishes, two upper body options, a straight sleeve with a roll-up tab, and a bell sleeve with elastic hem. You can combine any of the features. This pattern is intended for a lightweight woven fabric. If you want to make it in jersey, you would need to size down. Style it with skinny pants, a slim fit skirt, Jeans or leggings.

And now I have an outfit ready for fall! Be sure to get your copy of Piper Boho Tunic while it’s on sale for $10 (regular $12) until September 10!
