I completed this first draft of a tunic earlier this year. It features a high-low hem and high slits on the sides, along with leather button loops on the sleeves.
While I’m hoping to release the pattern for this tunic sometime next year, there are a few changes to be made first. Mainly, the neckline is wider than I intended, even after altering and adjusting it while making this first draft. I’m still happy with it, though – the rest of it turned out pretty much like I’d pictured, and it’s received so many nice compliments any time I’ve worn it (which is great to hear as the designer).
The next step is to work up a second version and make the intended changes, then I’ll get pictures and begin editing and finalizing the pattern.
Psst: If you’d like to keep up with day-to-day behind-the-scenes of my design process and projects, I’m pretty active on my Instagram account.
These are just a few projects I have been working on or have finished the past few months. Some are tests for patterns I’m working on, others are fun little experiments or things I can whip up easily in a day. All made for various reasons. I think it will be neat to look back on these “in progress” shots in the months to come and see how some of these unfinished projects have come along and how my designs have improved and changed as I continue to try out my patterns and ideas.
(I have to say, I love this photo!)
I love seeing other people’s work photos, so I hope you like this little glimpse of mine. Feel free to share links to your works in progress or recently finished. I’d love to see them!
