Last week, I showed you my tunic that I created from a basic tank pattern. I used a bias binding for the raw edges on that fun dress. This week, I am posting my tunics that I created with facings.
This one was my second try. I love this fabric designed by Susan Branch. It was in a pile of fabric that a friend gave me. The perfect amount for a tunic.
With the facings, it fits perfectly without a t-shirt underneath. (Although with a sleeveless dress, you can see my birthmark on my upper arm! LOL!! no skin disease here.)
So then I tried rayon!! This rayon is perfect for me because it has enough give to play cello in. Also, at my Sunday afternoon gig, I need to wear dark colors, not necessarily just black. So refreshing! I just got the navy leggings from Old Navy (see what I did there? LOL!!), so the outfit is perfect for gigs!
Here it is with a sweater…
So then I tried to manipulate the neckline to have smaller straps and a lower neckline.
Usually I wear a t-shirt underneath this, but it works sleeveless, too!! Can you tell my favorite color???
Next week I’ll have a detour from the tunics, but they’ll be back…and the Christmas versions!! I made a LOT of tunics last fall.
Stay tuned for loads of finishes this Friday!
