April Sew and Tell

April was a good sewing month for some-lots to see. Fashion Sewing Club photos and sewing notes can be found by clicking here or on Club Sheets/Garment Photos above.
Below is Karen’s ensemble-the tunic is ready-to-wear by Gudrun Sjoden. I’ve watched her clothing for some time. It’s full of color and pattern but not something I’d expect to see on the street here in the metro area. One of the dilemmas on my mind was to reinterpret the look into something I could wear. Karen has solved the problem by choosing just one piece and matching it with a solid pant and sweater. Now which piece will I order???
