So, here is my very first attempt at making an adult-sized garment.
It’s a "Sew Liberated" tunic pattern and I chose an aubergine, medium-weight linen.
Cutting it was a pain-in-my-rear, but the sewing went pretty quickly.
Fearing a miscalculation in cutting and my usual overly aggressive sewing habits, I made the tunic two sizes bigger, just in case. What I ended up with was more of a maternity tunic.
There’s enough extra fabric to conceal a bowling ball, houseplant, or 8-month old baby in or out of uterus. Take your pick.
