I’ve admired this pattern for a long time and it was on my wish list. When Pattern Review offered me a free pattern as a thank you for managing a contest, I finally got my Kalle!
I suppose this classifies as a tunic, but it’s the fabric that I really love this time around.
One of my 2018 goals was to sew a jacket with structure and a lining. I have made a couple of jackets out of knits, and one lined cape. This one was a case of learning one seam at a time.
In the past couple of weeks, I’ve somehow managed to acquire a lot of fabric. First there was a trip home to Canada, then I attended the annual conference for the American Sewing Guild, and finally, I was tempted by Fabric Mart Fabrics.
Recently I discovered The Monthly Stitch. It’s a collective of blogging sewists, and each month a challenge is posted. The April Challenge was to let Miss Bossy choose our next sewing project. Here’s a link to the post where I asked for Miss Bossy’s feedback. In case you didn’t read the first post, Miss Bossy is y’all.
