Apple Lanterns


On Monday it rained and rained and rained. After I'd wrapped a ton of parcels for posting I felt the urge to whip up another tunic. This will be the fourth one I've made in this pattern now. One was for Miss Rosey and now Little Bun has put in a request for a longer dress type.


This one is in Amy Butler's Chinese Lanterns fabric in my favourite apple green. I've spied some green patent Fly shoes that would match this perfectly. My feet are too big for Fly really, but for green patent I'm sure I could curl my toes up tight. 

I put the last stitches in just before 3pm and then did the school dash arriving just in time to grab the Buns and run. 

I wore my new top to work today to brighten the grey day. It's so comfy, fits in all the right places and hides the right bits too. This won't be the last of these tunics I'll be making.


  1. I love love love it! The pattern, fabric, color and all!! What pattern is it?

  2. Fabulous, cheerful, springtime pattern.

  3. Wow that is beautiful lovely fabric. There seems to be a lot of green in blogland at the moment me included. dee x

  4. That is so lovely Lisa and I adore the fabric.

  7. That fabric is just so you, just gorgeous. I don't think I could curl my toes up for long though, even for green patent!

  8. I love your fabric choice Lisa, all Amy Butler fabric is just gorgeous. Please please could you let us know which pattern you have used, I love tunics and this one looks easy enough to sew for a novice like me x Thank you for the beautiful inspiration xxx

  9. Gorgeous fabric and a lovely tunic - perfect for this Spring weather we've been having. Please could you post which pattern you used - I'm after something very similar. XX

  10. Love that fabric. I love green too and the shoes sound perfect - we need more colour in the world. Haven't made any clothes since school but am tempted as the fabrics and patterns are so much nicer now. Karen X

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
