Saiph Papercut Tunic: DIY Mustard Quilted Tunic Dress
Hello Dear Friends,
Here’s a little splash of colour to brighten a now dull and cold winters day. Mmmmmm…..mustard. It’s not a colour everyone likes, but, as Sunni wrote in this post, it’s something that I am drawn too (and I loved her mustard skirt!)
The fabric is somekind of quilted jersey/ cloque (from ebay). I have another piece in navy. It is warmer than wearing your average jersey, but handles something like a scuba. It was definitely easier to handle and I would say more hard wearing than my last quilted jersey piece, detailed here.
In addition to whatever changes I made last time, this time round I did a one inch sway back adjustment, I took a little more off the sides at the waist and I redrafted the neck facings and deepened them by one inch. I also slip stitched the facings to the shoulder and back seam to stop it flipping out.
The hems were overlocked, turned once and stitched. Yes, I change all my overlocker threads everytime to suit each project. 🙂
Hmmm…not much else to say. I told you I wanted a couple of looser fitting tunic styles in my wardrobe for the cold weather and I have them now. Now on to other, more complex projects!
Here’s a shot without the scarf. I do think if I made this again I might raise the neck up slightly.
Until soon….have a great weekend…we are predicted extremely cold weather next week (minus temperatures), so I am off to hibernate 🙂
