Wanderer Tunic - Tester Round-Up

January 27, 2015

Wow the response to the Wanderer Tunic has been overwhelming! I'm truly so grateful for all the wonderful testers that helped make this pattern fantastic! I designed this pattern with the double banded, 3/4 length sleeves in mind, eventually adding long and short options. I had no idea though when I sent it off to testing that I would eventually end up with 10 sleeve options in this pattern. My testers did such an amazing job of using their creativeness to make each one of their tops truly unique. I love them all!! Get ready for a picture overload....

Well if you are not inspired after seeing all those amazing Wanderer Tunics...I don't know what to tell you ;) Seriously though, the testers created some fabulous tunics and I could not be more happy with the outcome of this pattern. I've been working on this for several months and almost scrapped it twice, but thankfully pushed through and it is ready for you all, yipee!

You can pick up your copy on my website here or on Craftsy (anyone wanting to use PayPal will need to purchase on Craftsy). There is a Release Sale going on through this Friday, January 30th ($2 off, no code needed).

Hope you all love this tunic as much as my daughter and me! Oh and yes, there will be a women's version coming as well :)
