The second tunic in this series was just about as easy as the first one. I started with a crop top that had a nice lace edging, and a long, pleated skirt.
I put on the crop top and determined how long I wanted my finished tunic to be.
I cut off the bottom half of the skirt to the predetermined length, retaining the original hem.
I carefully pinned all of the pleats in place and serged along the top edge of the skirting before attaching it to the top.
I was fortunate that the width of the skirting was already the width of the top, so no adjustments were necessary.
I then pinned the right side of the pleated skirt to the wrong side of the crop top at the point where the lace edging met the t-shirt fabric.
I topstitched the pleated skirt to the top, stitching along the top edge of the lace edging. For modesty, I also stitched a strip of the skirt fabric to the back side of the lace that ran down the front of the top.
I love the flowiness of this top! Although, it made for some fun times trying to photograph at the windy Oregon coast!
Stay tuned for more tunics!
I like to link to these great parties!
