It's tunic time...part four!

Finally, a break in the rainy weather!  This simple tunic has been done for awhile, but the weather hasn't exactly been picture-taking weather.

This tunic started as an oversized t-shirt with white banding around the hemline.

I just simply made a cut a few inches above the hemline.

After taking in the sides a bit, I added a wide band of white t-shirt knit.  By placing the added band above the hemline, it gives the impression that it was always meant to be there and not just added on for length.

The final step was to raise the "too low" neckline by removing the existing white trim and adding a new piece of white knit fabric in its place.

Super simple, and super comfortable!

It's tunic time...part three!

Tunic number three in my series was made from a t-shirt and skirt.  I liked the black and cream combination of the printed t-shirt and the gingham skirt.

I started by cutting off the lower section of the skirt.  The remaining skirt (not pictured) was long enough that I able to hem it and still use this
refashion was a two-fer!

With the skirt scraps, I cut a "shirt tail" piece and attached it 
to the bottom edge of the t-shirt.

I cut a Peter Pan collar and added it to the neckline.  I also added a faux button placket and a couple of buttons to the front.

I paired it with a black pencil skirt, boots, and wool jacket.
