.Poppy Tunic obsession.

I'll admit it.  I've fallen behind on all of my work because I am obsessed with two things.  Knitting and Poppy Tunics!
I sewed a few tunics for Kelani Fabric to take to the Craft & Quilt Fair in Sydney next month and thought I'd make another one for myself while I was at it (you know how much I love a good production line!)
I loved the Lotta Jansdotter fabric used for the front cover picture of the pattern so went with the same print but in a different colour this time.
And it's been worn and washed many times already.  These tunics really are so comfortable to wear.  I'm still trying to decide on the right Liberty of London print for a full-print version...so hard to choose, especially when the fabric is so pricey, I don't want to make a bad choice!!
I'm slowly starting to see your Poppy Tunics appear around the blog world - if you've made one please send me a link or photo, I'd love to see!  This one is super cute - and made using a knit fabric too (thanks Jane!)
