I'm a little behind in blog posts, life has a habit of taking over sometimes, but there has been some sewing going on, so I will share some with you now.
This is the fancytigercrafts fen pattern which I purchased from The Village Haberdashery, the fabric is Liberty cord which I also purchased in The Village Haberdashery, here. It's a beautiful , fairly lightweight fabric (I am now wearing a lightweight turtle neck under it), perhaps not completely perfect for the Fen. I say this as it is inclined to pop out at the front, so perhaps a more drapey fabric would work best.

I opted for the V-necked, long sleeved, curved hem version, it is a very straightforward pattern, made in the way a jersey t-shirt would be made. The neckline is attached and just top-stitched down.
There are also round neck options and and a different shirt-tail-type hemline and, of course, there is also the dress version, which has a gathered waist and pockets. I daresay I'll be giving that a go sometime.
So there you have it, a quick and easy tunic, not a lot else to say really, other than I like it.
I'll be back soon to share some other makes, a bit of catching up to do.
