Earlier this week I had the privilege to be over at Pattern Revolution sharing a review of the too cool for school Solis Tunic & Dress from Sofilantjes Patterns. It is sporty and flirty, and perfectly Peanut.
I'm swamped with sewing deadlines and yet I couldn't help myself when I saw this pattern; I had to do it. It has such a clever t-strap back detail and I'm still a sucker for a good box pleat. Plus! There's a circle skirt option, too; it was hard for me to choose between the skirts. Then, just before I was ready to photograph the finished tunic, I grabbed a large scrap of coral knit from my shelf and twenty-minutes later had a pair of Go To Leggings to pair with it. Sewing is magic.
For the review itself, I sewed up a Solis in the Tunic style with box pleats, one size wide and two sizes taller (as always). I adore this fabric for my little true-blue lover -- an interlock knit from Jo-Ann's Doodles Collection [affiliate link] -- the final tunic is a great combination of pattern, fabric, and model! Now head over to Pattern Revolution to see more of it on The Peanut and read my honest review.
|Seriously, you can't see anything here ...and I have 50 more like it. Go over to Pattern Revolution for the few shots where she managed to stay still.|
