 Despite not being pregnant (see earlier post) everything I make seems to be maternity-like. It's due in part to the fact that I like my summer tops to allow as much air flow as possible around my midsection. New York is hot! (a new friend recently pointed out to me how much I complain about NYC in summer — even in the wintertime. It's true. I start sweating just thinking about summers here. As a West Coast (Canada) girl, I cannot take the heat. In the words of Rachel Zoe: I die!) Luckily, I just love the look of loose tunic-style tops with leggings or skinny jeans. This work-in-progress here is another version of the Lace Ruffle Tunic by Sew Daily — minus the ruffle, and made in silk (leftover from this project here) not jersey, like the pattern calls for. I loved this printed silk and had just enough left for this yoke and some details. I added a band of the contrasting printed silk at the hem, and on the sleeve cuffs. My yoke did not sew together nicely at all (silk is hard to sew!) so I have to take another crack at it.
