A little medical scrub looking, you say? I concur! I got this fabric from fabric.com and was not loving it. It is supposed to be a cotton lawn, but it is a little on the heavy side, and it turns out I hate the print. (And was too lazy to return it.)
Here is the line drawings of the pattern, so you can see some of the nice details that are actually there. (There is also a Lisette flickr group if you want to check out some of the nicer versions that people have made of this tunic/shirt/dress)
This is the first tunic I have made, and I am not as against the style as I used to be. But, maybe not this pattern for me. Although, I think I am eventually going to make the dress in a lighter weight fabric.
If you are not sensing the sound of disappointment, it is because I am not upset about what could have been a slightly underwhelming project. This top is perfect for me to wear in the ceramics studio! I am constantly getting clay all over myself, and this would be perfect to stick in my locker to put on before I get to work. It is also pretty high cut, so on the odd occasion that I work on the wheel, I'm not gonna flash everyone.
This is one of those garments that is useful rather than fashionable. I might even make another smock for painting, although I am not as messy at that. Any useful items that you need to make?
