sewing: atelier brunette cheyenne tunic imagine gnats

This post is written by Heidi of Handmade Frenzy.

Hi friends!! Im bursting with excitement to share my gorgeous new atelier brunette cheyenne tunic with you. 

The pattern I chose is the Cheyenne Tunic, by Hey June Handmade. If you know the pattern (which Im sure you do!), you can tell mine has a twist! Ill share more about that at the end.

I wanted to talk about this absolutely gorgeous fabric first!! The fabric I used is posie blue viscose dobby. I would describe it as similar to cotton lawn, but with a voile weight. Its very lightweight and is slightly sheer when held up to the light.

If you know me at all, this mig...

Lets get started!

Cut the following measurements out of fabrics:

* Two 2.5 by 6.5 white rectangles
