all dotty

P1000537So I have been on this t-shirt tunic/dress kick as of late. The nice thing about them is they keep one’s backside warm during the winter months. Then, come spring, you can just wear them as dresses, I suppose. Well, anyway, I thought I would mix things up and change the neckline. I found a pattern for a shawl collar in a Sewing Pochee magazine I picked up in Japan last fall and superimposed that over my basic tunic pattern. I had this weird sweater knit fabric I got at Fabric Depot a couple years ago, and that seemed ideal for this. I am not really used to this style of neckline, so I find myself constantly fiddling with it. Other than that and the lack of side pockets (I was simply too lazy to put them in), it is pretty comfortable and easy to wear.

    I LOVE this tunic! You look like a cool medieval huntress…except with dots. Next time put a full cowl on it. Bahahahaha.

    Awesome job. I have enough fabric to make a ton of skirts, so unfortunately I probably cannot make something like that without going to the store and adding to my stash. It looks super comfy and with leggings even appropriate for work.
