The Sneha Tunic

We’ve been dreading cleaning our closet for months, I thought I would just end up moving stuff from one place to another cause I would think I could make something else out of our old clothes.  A week ago my husband and I dove in and we filled up 7 – yes 7 garbage bags of clothes that we delivered to goodwill.  It felt soooo good!  So now we actually have empty drawers and hangers!

And what does that mean?  Well, of course I have to kick my sewing into high gear and fill up all that empty space — right?  But don’t tell my hubby I said that!!

It was a good thing Christina at Wardrobe by me needed testers for her new pattern – The Sneha Tunic.

As is to be expected from Wardrobe by me, it’s a great and versatile tunic pattern.  The pattern is designed with the option of symmetric or asymmetric hemline, lower body with dropping hemline or a lower body with less flare, 3 neckline options, fitted sleeve with 5 length options and tunic or dress lengths.  Phew – that’s a lot of different styles you can make!

First I made the longer length with the dropping symmetrical hemline and the scoop neckline.  I often blend to a bigger size at the hips but because of the flare in this pattern I just kept to a size 4 all over and the fit is great!

For this one I used light weight jersey bought from Stoff og Stil.

Since I had this great pattern and all that empty space in my closet I just had to make another one!

See totally different!

Here I did the shorter length and the less flared hemline but the same neckline.  Also a size 4.

For this one I used quilted jersey also from Stoff og Stil.  It is a much heavier fabric than the first one I made and it would probably not work so well with that option.  But with this option it worked for me and I got a nice and warm sweater.

Both of these came together fast and easy.  On the black one I just did rolled hem, so that one was really a fast sew.  I see many more of these in my future!

I think you should hurry up and get this pattern while it’s still on sale for $7!!

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
