Another Hot Patterns Cote D’Azur rendition, this time the tunic length. The fabric is a nice soft rayon knit, which has been aging in stash for a while. Some fabrics are like fine wine, they just need to age. Others are more like armagnac – they need to age for ages.
The pattern is printed so the fuller bottom pieces attach midway to the top. It took several tries, and looking (but not registering) at the drawings before I figured out that the way I had the traced pieces taped together was not how they were supposed to go. I had the bottom back attached to the top front. Sooo not going to work that way.
Once my taping faux pas was fixed (say that 3 times fast) everything went together nicely.
The top was sewn on the serger, and hemmed on the cover stitch. Easy peasy.
Now, you see those sequins on the fabric. They didn’t come off in the wash, which is what I expected. However they did come off during ironing. The iron had sparkles on it for ages!
