I’m joining the EYMM Think Fall Blog Tour today to post about the great Off The Shoulder Top & Tunic I sewed up! I have had this pattern for a couple months but still hadn’t had a chance to make it yet with summer weather being so hot. But I’m gearing up for Back to School in a week and a half (yikes!), and this sweater is a perfect layering piece that will be great for upcoming cooler days!
Now truly in California it won’t get to be “cool” until late September or so, maybe even October. So I picked a light and airy lacy knit for this sweater. My tiny girl turns 11 in a few days, but she’s still a size 8 in sewing patterns. Kimberly wants to wear the cooler pre-teen looks instead of little kid clothes, so the modern design of this top in a tunic length is a perfect choice for her style. In fact, she wore it 4 out of the 5 days after I made it, and had to bribe her to take it off to wash for pictures! She liked to layer a colorful cami underneath with her favorite pair of knit gauchos. Even on warm days this past week, she cozied up in her room with that cowl and a good book. When the weather turns, she can wear it with a long sleeved tee and jeans.
This pattern was really easy to make, but gives a very expensive looking garment. Kimberly’s friend’s mom asked for one in her size! Luckily, I have the women’s sized pattern already as well. Kymy’s patterns feature tiled pattern pieces that require no cutting of edges before taping together, definitely a time saver. The pattern instructions are easy to follow as well. The fun scrunchy cowl design looks harder than it is!
