Did you guys see the new patterns by Liesel & Co.? You know, the lovely sister company to Oliver + S? Well, Liesel has put together some really lovely new women’s patterns and I think you’ll want to check them out.
I made the Weekend Getaway Blouse/Dress. It’s got some really great details but isn’t over the top, and I love that. I dug through my stash and found this shot cotton and thought it would make the perfect fall tunic. Of course I didn’t have quite enough fabric to do the sleeves, but a quick pop into my local quilt shop took care of that. Lucky for me they stock pretty much all the shot cottons and I was able to grab enough to complete the tunic.
If you’re just getting into sewing clothes for yourself I definitely recommend trying these patterns! The others are just the same, very clear and super professional (of course!). I’m happy to throw this on with a cute pair of leggings and a belt, I think it’s the perfect fall staple. I think it would be so pretty in rayon too, I’m kind of obsessed with rayon now. I like the tunic length for my preference, but the pattern comes with options for both a blouse and dress length. I just like doing the layering thing, but it’s very easy to adjust to your preferences!
I omitted the pocket tabs, just felt like they weren’t something I wanted to incorporate. But that’s the fun part of sewing, you can make things just how you want!
I was given an advance copy of this pattern to review, opinions and thoughts are mine though, just so you know!
