Liesl + Co Late Lunch Tunic

Liesl + Co Late Lunch Tunic by Ginger House Designs

I bought the Liesl + Co Late Lunch Tunic pattern last year and have made it a couple of times in woven fabrics (one here and another that hasn’t made it to the internet).  I really love this pattern.  It’s exactly the kind of thing that I want to wear in the fall.  The kind of thing you wear with leggings and boots 🙂

For this version, I decided go with a knit fabric and use some left over chambray from a button down shirt I made for Ed (that will be up on the blog very soon).

I made a few modifications to the original pattern for this version.  I dropped and widened the neckline since I didn’t want a collar on this version.  I used the back skirt pattern piece to cut out the front as well, which gave it a different hemline look.

As an after thought, I shortened the sleeves.  To be honest, after I made it and tried it on, I found the long sleeves to be a bit overwhelming in this fabric (which I got from Joann’s but I can’t find online, so it might be gone).  Also, as a last minute change, I added elastic to the seam at the bodice to bring it in just a bit more since the knit fabric is thinner and drapey-er (is that a word?) than the pattern called for.

Actually, I was worried about the whole top being overwhelming in this fabric but my best friend Ellie (who is infinitely cooler than I am) told me it looked good.  So I trusted her.  She is painfully honest, too, so she would tell me if it looked bad.  I love you, Ellie, if your reading this 😉

And to keep the grandparents coming back, here is a picture of Molly (and of the next upcoming pattern!)
