Fall is here, and I’m always on the lookout for gorgeous patterns that can be used in multiple ways within my wardrobe. I chose the Wanderer Tunic by Striped Swallow Designs as my “dress up or dress down” piece, and I’m so glad I did!
The tunic has a gorgeous yoke in both front and back that allows for lace inserts or colorblocking. And the tunic can be made with wovens or knits, so the possibilities are endless. I decided to use dreamy brushed poly solids (slate and dark olive) from Sly Fox Fabrics and paired with a high-waisted pencil skirt in a floral Liverpool (Moonstruck in Darkest Olive).
I love the way I can dress this blouse up; and I hit the jackpot with my color choice–it’ll fit into my wardrobe in several ways.
The tunic also features an elasticized wrist, which not only is stylish and feminine but also keeps my sleeves out of my crazy mom duties (i.e. water, diapers, you name it).
And for the many days that I’ll be in stretchy jeans, this tunic offers the perfect loose silhouette with curved hem. It’s just what I need to look put together on my bus stop and school runs.
When you sew up your copy of the Wanderer Tunic, be sure to share in the Striped Swallow Facebook group and use hashtag #wanderertunic so I can find all of your gorgeous creations!
