Schoolhouse Tunic by jenib320

Happy Monday! Summer is already turning out to be crazy busy and it hasn't even officially started yet! I did finally, finally, finally worked through my inbox, so thanks for your patience if you asked a question in the last month! It got out of control!

This weekend I took a little break and stitched up a new top for myself.  This time using the Schoolhouse Tunic Pattern by Sew Liberated.  I skipped making a muslin and went ahead and used some Hello Pilgrim by Lizzy House.  I am really happy with how it turned out! I'm looking forward to making another in a lightweight fabric for summer!

I bought my Hello Pilgrim print from Bloomerie Fabrics (it's even on sale!).  You can also find it at Fat Quarter Shop and Pink Castle Fabrics.

Picked up a little hand stitching this weekend using a Simply Color mini charm pack this weekend.  These hexagons are destined to become a zipper pouch for a certain special someone! :)

I finally decided on a good fabric for the Darling Ranges dress pattern by Megan Nielsen.  I bought some of this print in the other colorway for a tunic, and this colorway seemed perfect for this dress.  It's the Terra Stamps print from Rhapsodia by Art Gallery Fabrics. 

I bought mine from The Intrepid Thread.

Speaking of Rhapsodia! Mmmmm! It's so delicious! This stack is currently becoming a new purse! I'll be sharing more about it later this month as a part of Purse Palooza, a month-long purse pattern party put on by Sara of Sew Sweetness!

How pretty are these goodies? They're yogurt stars from Trader Joes.  They're yummy and such pretty colors!
