More Pieced Tunics

I finished up some more tunics this week.  This pattern is so fast to whip up that I couldn't help but make some more.  It used an interlock that I got from Joanns about a year ago.  I decided to make one in all white. Why?  I don't know.  It wasn't very smart.  See that baby in the corner soon as he touches me I know I am doomed.  Oh well.    I embellished it with some white flower trim to jazz it up a little since it was looking pretty plain.  

I like it, but I think it would look a little better shorter.  All I see it white.  Hehe.

I also made an upcycled version.  This one I am going to use for summer pjs.  I took a bunch of different knits shirts that had holes and such.  So fun to be able to make something that was just going to get tossed otherwise!  I also used the t-shirt from my first 5K that I ran this past November.  When we got to the race they only had large t-shirts left, and it was incredibly huge on me.  I was bummed, so it is nice to be able to wear it now! ;0)

I am not done with this pattern.  I ordered some of this modal spandex from this shop on Ebay.  He had great prices and fast shipping.  This is the type of knit that is recommended in the pattern, so I thought I would give it a shot.  It is soooo soft.  Aren't those colors so pretty?

  1. Fabulous tunics. They look so comfortable. I have sew with knit-a-phobia. hahaha.

  2. Awesome! I am still afraid of sewing clothing with knit, I am a dweeb!

  3. Great job!! Those fabrics up next are so beautiful!!

  4. I think both lengths are super cute. Also, I love the "jazzed up" version. By the way, white is perfect for little fingers, because you can just bleach it. :-)

  5. These tunics look so comfy. I really like the upcycled version. Love the colors of the modal spandex you ordered, too.
