Summer Spark Sew-Along: the official Sabrina Tunic

Sabrina Tunic

Ok from my picture you may think I was on the Summer Sleeping Beauty Sew Along…but believe me this is the best picture of my photo session. In any case my summer has been very sparkly so far!

Here is my official entry The Sabrina Tunic…my first time sewing with quilting cotton. I loved how smooth it!

Trying to choose coordinating fabric has proven more difficult than expected (I was traveling when I bought it…to make the matter worse). The main fabric is Kaffe Fassett Aboriginal Dots in silver.

Forse dalla foto penserete che partecipassi al gruppo di cucito Bella Addormentata….ma credetemi che questa e’ la foto piu’ decente di tutta la sessione. Nonostante cio’ la mia estate e’ stata davvero scoppiettante.

Ecco il mio top ufficiale…Top Sabrina…la prima volta che cucio con cotone per patchwork. E’ morbidissimo!

La scelta di stoffa da coordinare si e’ rivelata piu’ difficile del previsto…anche perche’ ero in viaggio. La stoffa principale e’ Aboriginal Dots color silver di Kaffe Fassett.

Sabrina Tunic Back

From the back pictures I realized there are too many wrinkles… I will take more and try without the ribbon tied to see it gets any better…it’s not as noticeable in my previous Sabrina Tunic

Quando ho fatto le foto mi sono resa conto che ci sono molte pieghe. Ne faro’ delle altre e provero’ senza allacciare la cintura per vedere se la situazione migliora. Stranamente si nota di meno nella versione che ho fatto qualche giorno fa.

Finally some details of the print and a better view of the colors.

I plan on wearing the tunic tomorrow to work…I hope it will make me spark!

By the way…if you like this type of tunic/dress soon Rae will have a similar dress available: The Washi Dress…very tempting!

E per finire qualche foto del disegno dove potete vedere meglio i colori.

Domani mi mettero’ il top per andare in ufficio…spero mi renda scoppiettante!

Ah…se vi piace questo tipo di modello ho visto che Rae pubblichera’ un vestito simile tra poco: il Washi Dress…mi e’ gia’ venuta voglia di farlo!

  8. I love both versions of this top on you but particularly the second one. The colours are beautiful.

  9. It’s very cute and very flattering on you. I also like your fabric choices. Isn’t quilting cotton so easy to sew with? As for your closed-eyed photo, you don’t look sleepy but rather like you are enjoying a nice summer breeze on a day full of sparkles :)
