stoff og stil 23006, my birthday present :-)

My sisters in law got me a fun gift for my birthday. I was told it was a gigsaw puzzle. Sure enough it was in a way. It was a sewing pattern with fabric and notions. How exciting. I was dying to start the project right away. I promised that I would post this tunic on my blog so they could see the final result, and here we are!!!!

This first pickture shows the tunic in the store catalogue

And here I am. I am actually quite pleased with it. At first the sleeves were too tight on top, sort of restraining my movement. So I cut of a little, ajusted it so I found it comfortable. One thing I really liked about this pattern was the bias strip (skråbånd) finnishing on the neckline. The bias tape was only supposed to be in the back. In the front there was a facing piece that was supposed to fold dow center front. But I think this worked well. Here are my photos of the bias tape both in front and back:

First the sholder parts were sewn to the back pieces. Then the neckline is finnished with bias tape.




Then the front part was sewn on. In the end I sewed bias tape allong this seam, folded it under and stitched.

I think this was a nice “clean” way of doing the neckline. I will definetly implement this solution in future projects.



The pattern called for buttons center back. I sewed in a zipper. Along the bottom I sewed in a “pom pom” trim.

Thank you very much for this wonderful gift.

Tusen takk, Unni, Randi og Co. 🙂 Håper dere er fornøyd med resultatet.
