Oliver + S Gallery Tunic Sew-a-Long

I decided to try sewing for myself for the first time in ages and to participate in a sew-a-long for the first time ever.   I used a piece of fabric I've had for ages and I think it is silk if I remember correctly. The pattern instructions are clearly written and I didn't have any problems.   If I make it again, I'd do the 3/4 length sleeve and the other collar.  The pattern fit quite well, perhaps a little too roomy at the hips and I'd prefer a bit more room in the sleeves since the fabric has no stretch.

Altenew Inspiration Challenge Feb. 2016

I decided to try a challenge for the first time in a very long time.   I love Altenew Stamps and loved the colors in the inspiration photo.   I used stamps from A Beautiful Day and colored them with watercolors.  My card was heavily inspired by the lovely card shown on Altenew's blog!
