Late Lunch-Yes Please!

Ooooh Liesl, you clever clever girl.
How much do I love this tunic?
T H I S much!
My smile says it all Baby.
I still have a solid 9 kg (20 lbs) to lose but, my goodness, I feel pulled together and elegant in this outfit.
The skirt is full but so well shaped it is definitely not baggy.
The back has a beautiful shape.
I love the crispness of the linen compared with the flow-y wool/modal I used for my last one.
It just feels dressier.
And when you are a busy mum of six fabulous people you can't ask for much more.

PS My trousers are Portfolio's, sadly no longer available and Tildy is wearing a Oliver+S Garden Party dress

      I think I have found my new 'Portfolio' and I can feed in it easily, which is a huge bonus.

    1. Thank you Jillian, I feel really well, thank you.
      The poor old tum is a bit floppy yet but I got it back after the others so fingers crossed, once the physio gives me the go ahead to start running again, I will get things back to rights.

  5. Thank you Jane, I am flipping out over this tunic. It will be so handy for the next few years as I can feed in it.
    Zara did my hair, we went to Adelaide today to do over the salvage yards (and I wore white trousers)!!!
    Jed is starting my sewing room, so exciting!

    1. I love it Kristin. It has the kimono sleeve which is super flattering for my narrow shoulders. The FBA contains my big boobs and I can feed in it!

      I hope you feel better soon, i was saddened to hear of your ill health.

  9. Great top! I love that it's nursing friendly and nice and long. I actually bought the pattern when it came out. Maybe it's time to get it sewn up once I finish holiday sewing! And- a lovely package came to our house from Australia! Such a lovely treat and so very kind of you! Time to sew some overalls :)

    1. Yes Elizabeth, the fact I can feed in it is a huge bonus. Do try the FBA, it is not hard at all, I am going to go back and do it to the Weekend Getaway top too.


      I am so pleased the parcel arrived, it is good to share the pattern love.

  11. You look fantastic, Nicole. Like you said, it's all in your smile! You're just radiant, and I can tell you feel fabulous and comfortable. And hey, accessible for nursing with that button, right? And will still look good even as your body continues to change shape! FAB.
