Back when I was a little girl in the 1960s, we wore dresses to school. Nothing fancy. Just what we called “play dresses.” (We saved the fancy dresses for special occasions.) I don’t ever remember wearing pants to school through my elementary school years . . . except UNDER our dresses. Y’know. To keep our legs warm in the winter. And we also wore shorts under our dresses. Y’know. So we could hang upside down on the monkey bars at recess without worrying about “I see London, I see France” moments.
So my childhood style was . . . dresses-over-tights. Or dresses-over-pants. Often with my red, hand-knit cardigan thrown over the top for an extra layer.
And here I am now. Age 63. With my adult style . . . dresses-over-tights. Or dresses-over-pants. Often with a hand-knit sweater thrown over the top for an extra layer.
What I’m trying to say here . . . is that when Sew Liberated launched their new Studio Tunic pattern earlier this year, I was All. Over. It.
What a great design; a great pattern!
If you like dressing in layers, this is one tunic you don’t want to miss. And if you like pockets? Well. This tunic has Pockets! For days. . .
Check out my Field Notes post for all the details – and for a lot more photos, too.
I’m already plotting my next Studio Tunic.
(Because there will be more.)
Sometimes you just gotta let your inner child speak!
