We're back with some more looks from our new collection.  These are some before school shots of the Eider Tunic we sewed up for our girls last week.  Carla's version is a great colder-weather version in a mauve corduroy.  The solid corduroy provides a nice backdrop for the patterned fabric used for the contrasting yoke and waist tie--

The version I sewed for Nora uses two of the fabrics from our fall collection--the Etchings fabric in mustard and the white herringbone for the yoke.  I like how the white shirting fabric visually breaks up the intensity of the mustard fabric.  For an added pop, I used a woven blue ribbon.  Unfortunately, in my haste, I didn't zigzag the ends of the ribbon to prevent it from fraying, so Nora spent most of her morning at preschool shredding it.

I am putting together a quick pictorial about attaching the yoke to the tunic and will have that ready for you little later this week.

Happy Sewing!
