I’ve been eyeing this one for a while. A cute, simple top for cooler months. Easy to sew and a few options to keep it spiced up. Heck yes. Now that I’ve made it for Virginia, I don’t think she can wait for another one!
She chose the straight tunic, with slim, extra long sleeves. She didn’t want to add the hood or cowl neck, which are wonderful options. You can also choose short sleeve, regular long sleeve, or a non-slim sleeve. So really, this one can be just about anything you need!
Virginia picked this absolutely gorgeous sweater ribbed knit in Spiced Rum from Sly Fox Fabrics and it is so damn cozy!! We might have ordered this fabric in just about every color, and totally regret the ones we missed! (Remind me to order this Licorice before it sells out. I just LOVE it!!) It is soft and luxurious inside and out.
5 Out of 4 put this lovely top on sale for just $5 this weekend!! You should definitely grab your own Weekender Tunic if it is one you’ve had your eye one, or if you’re just seeing it for the first time. 🙂
It is FINALLY FALL!!!!! If the weather would catch up with the calendar, I’d appreciate it. But, until then, I’m diving into my great stash of sweater knits. We super stocked up last year and I’ve sewn so little of it! This test was a great excuse to make some ridiculously comfortable cardigans out of some even more ridiculously comfortable fabric.
When I picked up with gloriously soft sweater knit from Sly Fox Fabrics, I had no idea what to do with it! The coral was a bit more vibrant than I expected when I ordered it and it is very drapey and soft and I love it. I’m so glad I bought enough for this tunic length cardigan. It is a slightly dropped shoulder, making it extra cozy. Plus, there’s an option for an EXTRA LONG SLEEVE!!!! WHAT?! Do you love squishing your hands up into your sleeves? I know I do. This sleeve is perfect for cozying up on the porch, on a chilly fall morning, with a cup of coffee and a great book. (Dammit weather. Cool down!!) Plus these pockets are super cute. <3
Virginia also needed a comfy cardigan. So she picked this great wide ribbed sweater knit from Sincerely Riley!! In a beautiful grey, it is perfect for matching every outfit, ever. She also picked tunic length, but I gave her the hooded option and the slimmer fit extra long sleeve, just because I could.
Now, there are lots of other options included in this pattern! There’s knee and duster length. Plus a regular sleeve length. And a belt!! Do you need a cozy robe cardi for lounging in the house? This is PERFECT. I have a couple on my to-do list for comfy cool weather, in house (but cute enough for outside) layers! And, if you like to match your kiddos, there’s a girls’ version as well!!
Can’t wait to see what you do with these gorgeous patterns!
