Travel Tunic

There has been the usual whirlwind as I have finished sewing projects for clients in preparation for a week in the Mexican sun. I did take a few hours to make myself a tunic to take on the trip.
 I had a piece of rayon/spandex knit from Emma One Sock  http://www.emmaonesock.com/fabrics/knitprints.asp  
 There is always a selection of knit prints on this site. I love the rayon knits as they drape beautifully and are really comfortable to wear.

I used McCall's 6571 http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6571-products-22762.php?page_id=528&search_control=display&list=search 
 I used view B with the boat neck. The diagonal print on this knit begged to be accentuated, so I cut the top longer, and angled the hem to follow the print.  I will wear this with narrow black capris and a chunky silver necklace.
 I am so happy that I took the time to make one new piece for our trip!


  1. Good for you and I'm so happy you took the time to make something for yourself to wear on your trip. Your tunic looks great and I love the print and also love rayon knits as well. You'll have to share a pic of you wearing it on your holiday :)

  2. Love this tunic.. so pretty. Hope you have fun on your trip.

    1. Thank you for that! Now that I am home from vacation I can report that I loved the tunic. I felt chic AND comfortable! I love, love that rayon/spandex knit!
