I am very good at storage: this means that if you open my wardrobe, you will see a perfect capsule wardrobe with a few different trends… but with the hot weather, I have had to get the summer clothes out, and juggle it around. This is where I remembered how much I love the school house Tunic pattern. My summer one I made last year has practically been worn to death… I can definitely justify another one.
In an attempt to stash bust I found this fabric; a grey cross/dot pattern that had a good sized repeat. It was a narrow width, but more than enough for a schoolhouse with some to spare.
So How Did It Sew?
This is another one of those patterns I could do with my eyes closed… well not closed as that would be dangerous, but you get what I am saying.
This time I used a thick band of elastic on the sleeve, and I think it really adds to the overall effect of the sleeve, almost like a cuff.
The main objective of this to make it slightly different to the others was a tapered sport like skirt. I rounded in the edges and gave them a small split. I feel it adds just a slight difference to my other makes. I really liked how it turned out.
