Studio Tunic in Riverbend

Okay, this is the Studio Tunic in Riverbend Essex and it might be one of my favorite makes! I know, I’m sure I say that every time I make something. It’s fine.

Once I saw Meg release her Studio Tunic pattern I knew I had to make it. I’ve been wanting to make something like this to wear while I’m sewing. I’m always moving my scissors or seam ripper or marking tool and then covering it up and wondering where it went! You’d think I’d have some sort of system, but honestly, I haven’t taken much time to think about how to resolve it. I have a generous size cutting table and drawers, but it would be really nice to keep my main supplies directly on me! So hopefully this tunic might work for that purpose, but we’ll see. I kind of feel like I might take it home and wear it while I’m baking. So many options!

I chose the deep-rounded neckline option and decided to add a little fun to the back yoke by subbing in a little bit of striped fabric. I thoroughly enjoyed sewing this up! Maybe my mom needs one, so I will hopefully make another.

Essex for garments

Essex makes such a nice weight for this tunic. It washed up really nicely and I think it’ll be super durable for many more washings! I’ve sewn quite a few garments using Essex.

Here are a few more garments I’ve sewn in the past using my fabric collections:

Have you been sewing up any fun garments lately? I keep pinning them to my Pinterest boards, but I’ve been a total slacker for actually setting aside time to make any of them!
