Vogue 9151- Mood Fabrics Rayon

Vogue 9151 tunic with Mood Fabrics' Rayon print mix



  Isn't it fun when a fabric just draws you in?  That is exactly what happened with Mood Fabrics' Indigo Peacock-Inspired Rayon Woven.  I knew I needed to make something from this fabric and a tunic was the garment I started to envision.  I went with Vogue 9151 and started looking for an good coordinating fabric.  Mixing prints is so much fun, I searched Mood Fabrics for a good match.  Sometimes online it is hard to get a good color  match for fabric as colors look different on the computer screen versus in real life!

 I decided to look for fabric in the black and gray color range and found Mood Fabrics' Black and Gray Rayon Jersey Print and I really love how the two fabrics look together.  Plus I like looking for the black coordinating fabric as I am too impatient to wait for swatches sometimes!  If unsure don't hesitate to get a swatch, Mood Fabrics has a great swatch service.

 I used the rayon knit for the back yoke and also used it for yoke lining, which is a change from the pattern.   I did cut the yoke as a single layer to keep the print even across the yoke. Vogue 9151 tunic from Mood Fabrics' rayon print with knit contrasting fabric

 Stabilizing the front contrast band with interfacing  helped the rayon knit to be very stable and work well with the rayon print and for the tunic. Vogue 9151 tunic from Mood Fabrics' rayon print with knit contrasting fabric

 Two things to know about the pattern, the front "V" is a bit low, as you can tell with the camisole showing at the bottom of the "V".   Also, I cut the pattern between a small and a medium at the side seams.  I took the side seams in more below the bust, so know it runs on the large size (I did used the finished garment measurements on the pattern as a guide).  One inch was added to the tunic and the sleeves, which is a standard adjustment for me. The Peacock-inspired rayon comes in three different colorways and they are equally beautiful  or you could go with any of these rayon prints. Here are a couple more pictures of the tunic, which was a great sew to get me back to the sewing room in 2016.
