When I was making the Spring Collection, I was really being influenced by colors and shapes. I have lately been drawn to a more geometric look, with bold contrasting colors. I know color blocking isn’t exactly knew to the scene, in fact – I didn’t even like it when I first started seeing it. But somehow during the last year it grew on me, and I just want to play with bold, bright and beautiful colors!  Whether it is color blocking, funky color combinations, stripes, polka dots or giant gingham – these playful patterns have got my attention.

I thought the wavy dress was a fun way to add a dash of color, and seeing as how I have so recently been playing with the Racer Tunic pattern by iCandy Handmade – it was once again, the perfect tunic pattern to play with. 




It is just such a classic silhouette that you can do almost anything with.  You have already seen the pink lace transformation, which I am still in love with.  And now I can show you the Wavy Tunic, which has already become another favorite in our house. 



By using the free pattern found HERE, I will show you how you can add this fun wavy stripe down the front.



It is so much easier that it looks.  And once I show you how to do it, you will be amazed at what shapes you will find you can simply cut out of any pattern on hand.

Want to see how you can do it? Simply…

First cut out your pattern pieces.

Once you have the wavy strip in place, edge stitch and continue to put pattern together as normal.

And that’s it.

Almost.

I may have decided to revamp a pair of Chloe’s old boots to match this dress…

I saw THIS tutorial by Kojo Designs and was so inspired that I needed to try it out as soon as possible.

Needless to say, we were thrilled with the end result.
