Flared Tunic II

Fabricville was having a sale a couple of days ago for “elite club” members (I’ve been one for years since I often drop into the shop for fabric, notions,…). The poly/viscose fabric was half-price so I looked at the other bolts they had. I chose three more lengths to make tops – here is the second one completed. I liked the bright colours.

Second Flared Tunic

I have the other two lengths cut and ready to stitch up. I am aiming to do one today and probably the second tomorrow.

Two Flared Tunics Cut Out And Ready To Sew

These will replace the tunic tops I made last fall – the fabric pills badly (I have to shave it after every wearing) and they are just a tad snug in the bum. So they will go to Hand in Hand – the St. Vincent De Paul thrift shop in the area. These days my rule is: something new in the wardrobe means something out! My wardrobe is still embarrassingly large I’m just trying to keep it under control.

      • I took a look at how to construct a cowl neck – not difficult but needs to be done before you cut out the front (or back, depending where you’re putting the cowl). I’ve already cut both tops out. I’m thinking a cowl scarf might be interesting – although I don’t think I have enough fabric left over to make one deep enough to drape as a cowl. Another time. Good idea, though.
