I am about to start sewing some shirts and tunics for my daughter. Today I got the pattern out and pressed it and am about to start the alterations. This whole fashion for comfortable, pretty tunics reminds me of the kaftans that were in style when I was in high school. My mother made me a purple one with red embroidered trimming and one of aqua and apple green striped denim with aqua trim.
I seem to recall some green linen I have in the stash, so I am going to hunt it up and think about what kind of machine embroidered trim to put around the neckline and sleeves. I enjoy sewing on linen, it is so crisp and easy to press.
