This is an outfit so simple I almost didn’t blog it… but basics TNTs are the core of my wardrobe, so let’s take a look at my newest combination!
After sewing tunics for my mom, I decided I needed one myself. This is a Hey June Santa Fe, lengthened as much as my fabric would allow. I got less then a metre of this border print remnant, which you might recognise from the bralette I made with the scraps! As I’ve done before with this pattern, I gave it a straight hem which results in a longer-at-the-sides shape.
I left the hem raw for maximum length/laziness. It reminds me of Beth’s cute tie-front hack of a Santa Fe which she posted recently, because she mentioned how even the pattern designer doesn’t both to hem Santa Fe tops! I usually do, but not this time!
You might sort-of recognise this sweater, too! It’s the thrifted sweater I bought during Me-Made May, and then copied myself in this summer cardigan post. I feel in love with this royal blue colour, and I’ve been sewing it ever since!
Last but not least, my millionth pair of Cake Espresso leggings! I gave my mom the pair she wore while modelling on our sewing day , and sewed myself a slightly bigger pair. I find that while leggings will always stretch to fit, they do get shorter in the leg and rise if you gain a few inches. Plus, the more a fabric is stretched, the more sheer it becomes! I had this ITY pair generously longer, wider and higher in hopes that they’ll be opaque enough to wear with tunics. The answer is yes, decent with tunics, but not opaque enough to be leggings-as-pants!
Have you refreshed your basics lately? Sewing TNTs is not the most exciting sewing, but it sure does round out a wardrobe nicely!
