green eyelet tunic tutorial by skirt as top
if you ever may have wondered what i bought at britex a few months back…this is it (well, some of it). $30/yd luxuriously soft circle eyelet. suffice it to say i made a muslin first. and i only bought 1/2 yd. thank goodness Em is small.

      thanks! the fabric came like that!!! such a great green. i’d never seen anything like it, so i snapped it up despite the price tag. britex had all sorts of fabric that made my heart sing, but my wallet cry. ;)

      i love green. it pairs so well with so many other colors. and yes, the scenery in hawaii is just gorgeous! we have so many photos of just the ocean on our camera right now, it’s a bit silly.

    so totally awesome and summery feeling!!! i love the little neckties, great detail. Now I wonder if my kids would wear one, probably not. :(

    And you’ve done it again! I love it so much and your little girlie is too cute in green and pink. I love the design of this top – I want to make one too! And I can’t wait for your big announcement with Jessica! :) :) :)

    Gorgeous fabric, shame about the price – no wonder you made a muslin. The tunic is beautiful, another great variation of the FST. Em looks very cute in it and the fit is perfect.

    This is going on my (enormous) sewing to-do list! I love the tutorial and I agree with everyone else: that green is a-maz-ing. I love all things green this season. Great job, Kristin!
