Vogue 1061 Tunic / Jacket

Ahh, I needed this! After the marathon of the tailored jacket it was an absolute pleasure to sew up a quick project. One of my students made this recently and she lent me her pattern. We added about 5.5cm in length to each body piece. Photographed on location at my tap class this morning - thanks Miss Cherin!



Fabric is again from Martin & Savage - called Diagonal Knit - it is Poly / Rayon and Lycra - quite lightweight - yet warm - perfect for the current cold snap we are experiencing. The pants in this pattern look interesting too.  Well, I'd better practice my new steps .... knock heel toe heel dig ball change heel heel .......

  2. Nice looking tunic! It looks just like the pattern envelop, but with better fabric. Tap sounds like a fun way to get a little exercise.

  6. Ah another pattern in my waiting to sew pile. Having seen yours I will get onto it as it is perfect for Saturday morning school sport - when you feel like pull on a tracksuit over the top of your PJs, but this will not do for your privately educated DD!
