Clipping the Bat Wings!

Digging through the box of dresses that my mom gave to me (ones that she wore back in the late 70's-early 80's), this blue one was the next to catch my eye.  I really liked the soft color, and although it is polyester, it has a linen-like feel to it.


The overall fit was fine, but it needed some tweaking to bring it up to speed.

It's tunic time...the final chapter!

This is the final tunic in the series and also serves as a transitional piece into my next focus of refashioned clothing.  A while back, my mom gave me a box of her (mostly) dresses that she wore in the 70's and early 80's.  I have decided to try and breathe some new life into them.  This skirt and blouse is the first one to be transformed.  It just happened to make a nice, lightweight tunic that will be great for the summer months ahead.

It's tunic time...part seven!

I have really been enjoying making, and wearing, these tunics!  They are soooo comfortable!
This tunic started with a turtleneck and a skirt.
