Origami Tunic


Yeah self-care sewing! I’m actually on a self-care sewing roll. I’ve made four patterns for myself, and have a fifth taped together. This week is an anomaly – I never sew for myself.


I had the opportunity to test the Origami Tunic & Cardigan for Ladies by Love Notions.


I LOVE IT!!! Tami is excellent to test for. I think the pattern went through at least five revisions because Tami wanted to get it perfect before it went out.


Just as a heads up, I opted to cuff my sleeves. It isn’t in the pattern. I just wanted them to match my neckline.


The Pattern: On Love Notion’s website
Sizes: XS (30-33″ bust) to XXL (46-48″ bust)
Options: Tunic or cardigan. Short, 3/4, or long sleeve. Banded or cowl neckline. Handkerchief or straight hemline.
Skill level: Confident beginner
Facebook: Love Notions fan page. Love Notions group.
SALE: For a limited time, the pattern is marked down to $7 from $8.95.
Other: Head to Love Notion’s website and sign up for the newsletter. You’ll receive a free pattern (The Dashing Vest), and find out about sales first. Now’s a good time to sign up with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales on the horizon.


About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
