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.
