The Cheyenne Tunic with Indiesew


I’ve partnered with Indiesew to bring you this Cheyenne Tunic, by Hey June, in their beautiful multi colored shirting.

I believe this fabric will be restocking soon, so keep an eye out.

This shirting fabric is super light weight, but not sheer at all. That being a rare combination to find, I’m obsessed with it. I think it’s the perfect weight for summer and will probably be one of my cooler shirts for hot summer days.

The word shirting sometimes makes me nervous, but I was so drawn to the colors that I knew I had to have this fabric. This fabric doesn’t have the stiff hand I thought it might have; it’s actually very soft, has pretty good drape, and is still stable enough to make tedious sewing totally doable.

Here are a few other fabrics from Indiesew that would work great for a similar look:



 

I love the 3/4 sleeve. I’ve worn it down or rolled up. Which do you prefer?

I am weirdly obsessed and way too satisfied sewing up the tedious placket, sleeve cuffs, and sleeve vent bindings. It had been way too long since I had made a collared shirt so I was a little nervous to get going, but as always Adrianna’s pattern directions are among the clearest I’ve found. I used Hey June’s Sew Along hand-in-hand with the printed tutorial. I highly suggest that!

I already have plans for a View A, but I think I’ll hold off until fall. I love this pattern and the construction is phenomenal.

I decided to raise the placket by 1 inch for some extra coverage. I’m obsessed with how long this placket is. It would totally work for a nursing Mom, which is always a plus for us baby having women!

This is my “I’m-so-proud-I-made-a-button-up face”! Sewing really is rewarding when you push yourself past your comfort level, learn new skills, and get to wear your hard work for the world to see.
