Simple Tunic Dress

Simple straight line tunic is a very versatile shape as it give a lot of room to play around. I love my tunics with belts or elastics to shape the waist.
 The first one was made from a light red fabric with elastic stitched around the waist and a big bow stitched on the side ( I love the bow^_^) :



The red on is from last summer. 
My newest one is made from grey colour lightweight wool blend fabric with tight elastic casing as well as printed fabric side inserts:






  Playing around with details/ fabric choice when using the same simple pattern totally changes the outcome.

My new discovery with an all favourite technique

We all love to feel warm and comfortable in this cold season, don't we?^_^
I LOVE the look of woollen cardigans or jackets but often find them too warm when I need to run my errands during the day, wool also feels too prickly without anything underneath it which only adds up more layers.
I like and need something soft on my skin that would keep me warm and comfortable throughout the day but also would look nice and stylish.
 When I first saw the fabric I immediately fell in love with this knitted, heavyweight cotton jersey. It's of an amazing quality and just a bit stretchy. I came up with a very simple slightly longer tunic pattern. To vary the shape it can be worn either with or without a belt. I love my belts so it has to be WITH A BELT FOR ME but there is a loose version here too. 

In my opinion the tunic dress turned out pretty nice, it's soft, warm and very comfortable but also quite stylish. Yes yes all of them in one!^_^


Before sewing the pieces together I decided to add hand printed details in contrasting yellow and orange colours.
