I’m sure you’ve heard of Shwin Designs – I love reading the Shwin and Shwin blog. In the shop you’ll find super cute patterns like these:
I had a chance to review that last one, the “Maggie Mae” Tunic, in the larger size….
I would say it’s not hard, but it’s not a beginner pattern. I think it’s a perfect difficulty level for the beginner sewer who wants to try a bit of a challenge. I say that because you will get to try a curved seam (the one that cuts across the bodice) and try making pleats and buttonholes. So it’s a little more than just straight stitching – it can expand the skills of a beginner sewer. Hope that makes sense.
Here’s some up-close pictures to show the pleats and buttons:
You can make it to whatever length you desire – I think it’d be cute as a dress, but I went with a longer tunic length for this one.
Makes for great wearable fun!
