Creating A Jedi Tunic
Updated: Sep 26, 2019
In August I decided to take a novice sewing class at Bernina in Stitches here in Johnson City. To begin with the teacher, Donna, was amazing and personable. She is very knowledgeable in the art of sewing. We learned terms, techniques, the ins and outs of our machines, and how to do simple sewing.
We were able to choose one pattern to practice on in class. I choose the Simplicity Pattern 5840 Adults' & Teens' Costumes. I did the view C tunic.
We worked on these for six weeks, once a week.
Some tips I picked up included: iron the seams, they lay better for sewing; Use your measuring tool, it helps so much when hemming; The bands that go down the front of the tunic, they need to be ironed a few times.
Below is the outcome of my Jedi Tunic. ( It needed ironing afterward)
