When I first saw the Cabin pattern, it was over at Fancy Tiger Crafts' blog. Amber and Jamie whipped up two cute Cabins and I've been pondering whether to go for it. Finally I saw Teresa's over at Dandelion Drift, and I took the plunge!
This is my first attempt at the pattern and as usual, I look for fabric already in my stash. This cute navy and white fabric complete with giraffes, elephants and monkeys was purchased a long time ago when I was going to make a quilt for my son. Obviously that never happened (he's now 25!) but I could never let the fabric go. Here it has been put to go use, supplemented with some other scraps.
online tutorial on the weltless pockets. I still like my pockets but next time I will follow the tutorial.
Sizing wise it's obviously too short on me for a tunic. I had to lower the bust darts. I think this pattern is probably modeled on someone much shorter than me. Thank heavens for the dark fabric to hide all my changes. Otherwise it's a cute pattern. I like the pleat at the back.
I will wear it for awhile and see. I am already thinking of another small change to make in my next version.
Now, back to preparing the next batch of projects! Happy Sewing!
