Ariadne Tunic by Tanit-Isis

I have lost all witty inspiration for a title ... perhaps something will come to me later.

Not so long ago I bought a Jersey bed sheet for my son, but after 2 washes it had shrank to the size of a cot sheet. What better to practise Jersey sewing skills on :-)

It is a thin 4 way stretch so the Ariadne Tunic by Tanit-Isis seemed perfect. I do feel I look a little pregnant in it, but when it is hot and humid it is nice to wear something loose.

I omitted the band around the bottom, because my hips are the largest bit of me and I felt that the band would draw extra attention to that bit. I also didn't do the keyhole in the back due to personal preferences.

My jersey hemming skills need to be improved, but I have no doubt that with time that'll come. Overall I am really happy with it and I am sure I'll wear it lots this summer. Thank you Tanit-Isis for providing this lovely pattern :-)


  1. Looks great, and so comfortable! I don't think it makes you look pregnant, but I know how self-conscious I get about things in my clothes that nobody else can see!

  2. This looks very now in style.

  3. this is very nice. I have hips too, and I am glad to see this top without the band. You look far from pregnant. It has a very nice drape on you.

  4. this looks great, you did a great job on it, Im also bigger in the hips and love the idea you have of making it more flowey across that section :)

  5. Did you do any mods to the sleeves? I like how they look on you, but I worry about how they work with chubby arms....

  6. Printing of any kind will be done in sublimation printing fabric. The digital printing service is available online.


I'd like to hear what you think, but do try to be nice as this is what I do for fun and enjoyment :-)
