Blusita de verano / Summer tunic
Yesterday I thought I wouldn't be able to post today, but in the end, I came out from work sooner that I had thought and got to sew for two hours (what a luxury!) Then, I managed to get half an hour here, ten minutes there, and I finished the tunic at night in bed.
The Indie Cub, una tienda etsy donde puedes comprar patrones o el kit completo. El kit viene con todo lo que necesitas: un metro de tela de una buenísima calidad, botones de nácar, el elástico para los puños y el hilo a tono con la tela. El patrón impreso en una papel de gramaje y las explicaciones las podéis pedir en inglés o en español y vienen con fotos por lo que son muy claras.
This tunic is a kit That I bought from the Indie Cub. It's a etsy shop where you can either buy the pattern or the kit which is complete for you to sew the tunic. It has everything you may need: 1 yard of fabric (mine is Liberty, high quality), thread to match the fabric, buttons, elastic for the wrists, the pattern and the explanations which you can buy either in English or Spanish.
Having the kit at home made it very easy, I didn't need to run to the shop for the last minute essentials, I had all I needed. I'll share one tip with you: I used freezer paper to cut the pattern, that allowed me to stick it to the fabric and to cut it with no mistakes. Then I just pulled it and it leaves no traces on the fabric. I just folded it for future occasions, you can iron it onto fabric as many times as you like. I'll be surely using it again!
Have you sewn any garments lately?
