now, i realize that it's october and that the majority of you are putting away your summer clothes. i on the other hand, decided to finally cross off a long awaiting project on my list- this simple tunic. the weather here between the months of october and december can be pretty unpredictable (read: annoyingly warm at times), so i'm confident i'll be able to get some use out of this top before the year is up.
anyway, the tunic can be elongated for a dress or shortened for a smaller top. as you can see from my photos, you can wear it either with the V in the front, or in the back, and change up the way you tie the sash- subtle differences, but kind of fun to change it up a bit! it's very similar to the pillow case dress that little girls often wear.
cut 1 of A, cut 2 of B.
cut two pieces (may need to join multiples if you don’t have enough fabric) for straps:
3” x 54” (or however long you want it)
5” x 108”(or however long you want it)
or… use ribbon.
fold each strap in half and sew together, with a half inch seam. trim seam. using a safety pin to help, turn both straps inside out. you should now one strap that is 1 inch wide, and one strap that is 2 inches wide. tuck the ends inward in each strap, and ladder stitch them shut. iron.
