KCWC Day 4 - Something Girly

Excuse me while I gloat....
 But I love this little tunic!

Sewn out of a lovely Lambswool rib knit, that I've been hoarding for the last two years.... waiting for the perfect project.

Inspired by these pins ( on Pinterest ) here and here... I attempted to make the overlapping collar

And amazingly it turned better than I thought it would!

As for the pattern?  Well I started with Pattern 11 from Ottobre 1/2010,.... I needed it for the raglan sleeves,
but that's where the similarities end.

I chopped it up and repasted it together so much that it's now unrecognisable.

I just love it when a plan comes together like this....
I think patience was the key this time......
Oh and of course, my trusty friend the unpicker ;)

Wow!! The tunic is gorgeous, when I was going through posts on my google reader my first thought when I saw these photos was 'expensive'!
