Cool cover up for summer.
Given the week long heatwave we have had already in November, I think that we are in for a loooooong, hot summer. I really dislike sunscreen...oily, greasy stuff...but a necessary evil.
But I am aiming to make a few cool cover up tops for summer so that I can sneak out without having to run heaps of greasy stuff on me for a 10 minute walk.
Pattern- Sew Liberated Schoolhouse tunic
Fabric- Vintage cotton from stash (I really adore this fabric)
I made the length halfway between tunic and dress length as I don't like short shirts. I don't like 3/4 length sleeves but dopey-dick that I am, I just cut them out while in la-la land. I can roll them up a bit or put up with them but will adjust the length next time. I think that the bodice size is OK but feel that it could be more fitted lower down so may run it in a bit as it feels a bit balloony at the moment. I was expecting a more tapered look.
I will make this again but will adjust the fitting.
