With The Leaves I'll Fall {Simplicity 2249}

Here is TaMera's blouse; it was finished in time for the fall festival she was volunteering at!

Let's talk about the seams... which are french seams and I have fallen in love with them! I wish I had known about the sooner! But, like my Mom mentioned "You are still learning and you can't learn everything at once." ...That's true. Very true!
Anyway, they are amazing! I love how clean the inside of the tunic looks. The only seam that isn't a french seam is the zipper seam...because can you even do a french zipper seam? I don't

If you want to try french seams (which you should because they are incredible!) cotton is a great fabric to start on! It's forgiving and doesn't do a lot of moving around. 

...maybe I'll try doing a tutorial on them... hmmm, something to think about... :)

The pattern is Simplicity 2249 that Grandmother gave us. The tunic is version D with version A length sleeves.
The fabric was left over from about 14 years ago and there was just enough for the tunic!

From the stash:

-Bias Binding (For neckline and sleeves)

I couldn't help but share all of these adorable pictures from the shoot! :)
