tunic in nani iro double gauze

It's shaping up to be a busy week. It started with a Sunday morning sewing session to create these tunics for two special girls in Mexico - a four year-old and an eight year-old. Our friends from south of the border are visiting the US and will be meeting up with Patrick who is doing some archival research in Washington, D.C.

Shirts like these, in Nani Iro double gauze cotton, just shouldn't be sent directly to rural Mexico via customs and the Mexican postal service. Hand-delivery is in order!

And yes, in case you were wondering, I'm working on a pattern for this tunic as part of the Sew Liberated Autumn Collection. (Which sounds all fancy, but really, it's just three patterns, maybe two ... depending on how much I feel comfortable doing with the babe in arms!) It will come with a twirly skirt. The other pattern (sneak peek later) is a unisex boys/girls shirt, shorts and pants.

My Mom is here for the week while Patrick is away, and we're picking Great Auntie Pat (and she is one great Aunt!) from the airport this afternoon. I'll stop by in this space when (or if!) I have the chance!
