Introducing The Canny Tunic

Canny Cover

I am very excited about the release of my latest pattern The Canny Tunic. I originally designed this pattern for myself a little over a year ago, when I did my first  Six Month Challenge. I need a comfortable, quick to sew top that looked great. I have it in about 10 different colors. I love wearing it with skinny jeans or tights. It can be styled so many ways.  It is now available in sizes xxs-3x. It is sure to be an asset to you wardrobe and sewing pattern collection.
