As part of her new fabric and patterns online business - Backstitch - Alice recently asked me to review a sewing pattern for her. Which has been the perfect excuse to sit down and make something - hooray! She allowed me free rein of her patterns to select from - Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner, Oliver + S - they're all there and more. But I decided I'd like to have a go at the Sew Liberated Schoolhouse Tunic. So Alice popped a pattern in the post to me.
Look, cute packaging - the epitome of understated chic. I was all excited about getting stuck in. And slightly nervous about the responsibility of reviewing the pattern. But I began, and I finished too - you can see the my full review of the Schoolhouse Tunic on the Backstitch site.
Just don't get me started on the trauma of photographing it - I thought about showing you the out-takes, but I am too embarrassed. Clearly my photography brief to the hubby (Come, take a photo of me wearing this. Try to show it clearly and make me look good) is not up to scratch. Next time, he can wear the tunic and I'll take the photos.
