The Cheyenne Tunic

17.12.15

By now I´m still trying to get my Winter wardrobe in order, so when I see a testing call of something that´d work for my capsule I just jump in the wagon. The deadline pushes me to make things faster, thus having something to wear the day after, ha!
I´m a fan of Hey June Patterns and it´s an absolute delight to sew from her instructions: Adrianna structures it with all the professional finishes but in a way it´s perfectly suitable for an advanced beginner to feel confident enough to try them and get great results.
The Cheyenne Tunic is, once again, another great example of how someone can make a flawless shirt with minimum effort: a little precision is required, yes, but there´s nothing scary about this. The placket, for once, has one of the simplest constructions I´ve ever tried.









I made a view B in shirt lenght, with cuffed 3/4 sleeves. Notice this was a first stage testing, so the final pattern has some changes from mine: there´s 3" ease added to the hips and the collar curve was redrafted to fall perfectly with the Y placket.
I used a very light rayon challis with the wrong kind of interfacing: the result of using a heavier than the fabric interfacing is ending up with a wavy effect on interfaced pieces and a wrinkled "paper look". It does disappear after hard steaming, but it´s something to be aware when using lighter fabrics.

 

 



And now I´ve got a goodie for you! Adrianna was kind enough to join me so here´s a little treat: enter the Rafflecopter below for a chance of winning one of her patterns, you get to choose! It will run until the 21st December (00:00 GMT).
