Denim Tunic

I have wanted to use this pattern for ages and eventually having a splurge on dressmaking I decided to take part in National Sewing week and use some denim chambray to make a very unfussy version.

It is New Look 6111 . It’s a baby pattern so comes in sizes NB for newborn up to L which is about age 2 size. I am not really a lover of too much applique or fuss so just went for plain. The hardest part was pinning the neck piece onto the front as there are these tricky corners and I had to start the whole process twice. Eventually though I succeeded and used a lovely bright purple bias strip for my edging.

It looked lovely finished and was worn this morning at playgroup x
