Today I am showing you two patterns from Zierstoff Patterns*. The Greta Tunic and the Mina Shorts. Both patterns are great for summer sewing. We were just planning a trip to Indonesia when I was looking at the patterns, so I got very inspired to sew some summer garments.
First up is the Greta Tunic. It is a tunic which is great for summer to put over a swimsuit at the beach for example. When I saw the Greta Tunic I just thought it would just be perfect for our eldest. I like the loose fit, it just flows nicely. An added bonus is the quick sew, only attaching the facing in the front might take some time.
The fabric was already in my stash for almost years. I loved it when I saw it online, but once it was in my hands I found it difficult to combine with other fabrics and did not find a pattern that fitted the fabric. When I saw this pattern I thought the fabric was just perfect for it.
The Mina shorts are an even quicker sew than the Greta Tunic. Within 2 hours I cut the pattern, chose the fabric (which always takes some time) and sewed the garment. The only downside was the fabric that I choose, it has some lines in it and of course I wanted the lines to line up. So I had to unpick for a couple of times before I was satisfied.
