I had seen it and loved it but was really really trying not to buy anymore patterns.
A few weeks back,Jed and I had a dirty weekend in Adelaide(well,he went to an Ag College reunion and then on to a titty bar whilst I sat in a hotel room and hand sewed Zara's dress-with Matilda as company).
Any hoo,His Nibs was feeling a wee bit guilty the next day and took me to Spotlight(AUS version of Joanne's)and minded Tildy so I could have a good poke about!
First I found this little lot.
It is a linen/rayon mix. I found it covering its eyes with shame at the indignity at being plonked in a Sale box with Dora polar fleece(shudder).
To me it said 'Sunki'and'Help'!so I bought what was left on the roll.
This left Lidia and Matilda. For Lids I found some stretch drill in a oriental blossom print and for Tildy I found this!
An Ikat printed stretch drill.
Yes,it came from Spotlight,it was $15 a metre and there was bog's left.
Now,I have admitted to being not the greatest fan of Ikat prints but this is one of those patterns that deserves a good fabric choice.
And this pattern looks awesome in Ikat.
As a tunic it is perfect. I will add some length to make a dress.
I may take a little off the centre front and back to make it a bit snugger fitting. I think that would look cute!
I love it with her long boots.
She loves the pockets!
Which fit beautifully.
I think,sized up,they would make a snappy pair of capri pants in stretch drill.
So,what are you waiting for?
Go and get funky in your Sunki.
