KCWC Fall 2012 Day 2

the pattern: Charlie tunic from Rae

the fabric: I used a cotton/linen blend I bought at Purl Soho this summer for the main fabric. The facings are made from a Birch fabrics organic cotton (picked up at Whipstitch earlier this year).

the sewing: Love how easy this pattern was to follow! The only headache I ran into was sewing on the sleeve facings. It’s just plain hard to sew with that small of an opening- but the end result is so cute that it was worth it! I was in such a hurry to show this to you tonight that I took pics without having buttons on it. Little Man was so grumpy and ready for bed that I couldn’t wait if I wanted to get this up tonight. So excuse my grumpy looking model and check out his cute new shirt ! This is a great fall shirt because he can wear a tee underneath it and be nice and warm on the chilly days. Also I just think the swingy silhouette of the tunic is so cute. I will say that the 18 month size just fits him so when (definitely not if 🙂 ) I make another, I will make the next size up since there’s not much give as you pull this on.
