Hello and welcome to our second edition of Sew The Library. I'm very happy to have you here. For this month's project I decided to add a new piece to my wardrobe. I've only made another top before (you can see it here) and since then I've been anxious to try again, but for one reason or another I kept postponing it. But not anymore: Sew the Library is the perfect encouragement to put our beloved craft books to use. This new top is the Kimono Tunic from the Sweet Dress Book. I'm absolutely obsessed with Japanese sewing books and this one is a great one. The patterns are very relaxed and user friendly; specially for a beginner like myself. The fabric is a cut to flannel I got at my local fabric shop on clearance and I've been saving it for months looking for the perfect project. It is super soft and very cozy. I think this tunic is going to get lots of use. I love the color an the texture and so easy to wear. The fit is a bit loose but I think that is part of the charm of these designs. And it is perfect to wear with leggings or tights so it makes for a super comfy outfit. 
Now on to the link up.

  2. Pink is definitely your colour. This looks like it would be nice and easy to throw on over whatever you're wearing whenever you need just a little bit more warmth.

  9. Eep! What a cute tunic. I love when quilters tackle clothing projects -- we *can* sew more than big rectangles. Good for you!
