Leisel & Co Gallery tunic

Hi Guys! I can't believe its been so long since I last wrote a blog post. I have been sewing (not as much as I would have liked) but as always life gets in the way.

  My latest make is very Autumn appropriate - the Leisel & Co Gallery tunic and dress. This was my first time adding a dart to a pattern as well as doing a full bust adjustment, sewing a placket and any type of collar. The instructions were fantastic - in fact I would go as far as to say that they are the best pattern instructions that I have come across. I was expecting the make to be a little tricky, but thanks to the instructions it was a breeze! This is actually my wearable muslin and is a lovely cotton lawn that I have had in my stash almost since the beginning of the stash!

 Not a great photo of the placket and collar but you get the idea. I used a contrast fabric for the inside of the collar.

I thought I might struggle with the curve of the hem but again thanks to the instructions and tips it was fine.

I think this will be a versatile layering garment for the autumn and winter, great with jeans/jeggings and boots. 

  Thanks for stopping by - hopefully it won't be as long next time!

    1. Thanks Jo! I think it will be a useful wardrobe addition!

  2. Totally love this. I have bought the Tova pattern which is very similar. How amazing to have such a funky top and be able to say I made this!
