Spring is finally here and I want to celebrate with an embroidered tunic. I want a shirt that’s somewhat light, airy, and fun to accompany my mood (I’m not a winter person and am celebrating the warmer, longer days). I’m thinking a boxy shape, 3/4 length sleeves, with a deep v-neck in the front. It will be a longer tunic, with the sides split up to the waist. For the color, I’m thinking off-white with some fancy stitching around the edges. Sound good? Let’s get sewing!
My sister recently gave me a romper which is cute, but is just way too short. I’m somebody’s mother now (!!! still such a wonderful and wild experience !!!), so there are some lengths I just will not wear anymore. But the material is so pretty and the sleeves are so fun, so I decided to upcyle it and turn the romper into a tunic top. I’ve been on an upcycling kick lately turning a sweater into a skirt, and earrings into a necklace. Giving new life to old things is really rewarding and surprisingly easy.
