And Shellieibean - Didn't they have some really fab tunics in that article?! You've gotta try to make one, too!
they really did have some lovely tunics in there. when i saw that virginia taylor one though, whew! i was in love. i love large botanical prints like that. i also like your idea for the next one. i thought i might use 2 solid colors..one ofr the collar and sash and another for the rest of it. like 2 shades of green? but i just bought some new fabric witht he intention of making that circle skirt that was featured in the hot topics recently and didn't get enough sooo... i think i'll use that first.
it seems like a few simple shapes, and not especially complicated-but i've been fooled before.
can't wait to see how you did it
