It is quite a stretch for me to say “dog days of summer” in September. In Texas. The air conditioning is running all day, and nothing other than lightweight clothing is the norm. The weather may get cooler in November, or not.
Dog Days Tunic.
I feel really good in this! And the “granny topknot”……..
Well okay, now that that’s established, here’s my latest make above; a loose, summery, rayon-georgette top that I just love. Here I am, wearing the top with navy ponte knit pants, and I’m ready to go buy toilet paper.
I’ll try to keep this post short, and hope you’ll enjoy it.
Rayon-georgette for tunic; pants are a previously made ponte knit pair. Both from Sew Much Fabric. It may be sold out, but feel free to check other fabrics on Roz’ site.
None. The “kurta” draft was used to make this top. For the neckline treatment (slit and collar band), I used an old Simplicity standby (out of print). Type in “kurta” in the search box above and you can see the draft.
What do you think of the pearly buttons on each side of the neck band? Too much? The buttons serve no purpose other than just sit there and look pretty.
The shirring and the neckline tie detail was inspired by Ann Ngo’s blouse in this very fabric! Watch this video and follow her at Youtique Bridal on YouTube and @youtiquebridal on Instagram. I changed the location of my shirring to the panel under the sleeve. Wanna see the live chat Ann and I had when she invited me to be her guest on IG Live? Go here…
Well, here we are with another one for the closet. Such a “free and airy” feeling to make and finish a new wearable, no? If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments.
Be healthy. Please.
