Hello. Last week I blogged about a bohemian patchwork print maxi skirt I made. If you missed that post, here it is. Boho Skirt with Patchwork Fabric. The inspiration for that skirt came from a skirt I saw on Pinterest that I added to my “Inspired to Create” Pinterest Board. Here is the inspiration skirt. Boho Skirt
So, today’s post is about what I made with the extra fabric from the boho maxi skirt. When I tell you I love this fabric, I really mean that. I believe I had a little shy of 2 yards. At first, I just wanted to make a spaghetti strap A-line top to just tuck it into the skirt. Then I decided I would make a tank. I really wanted something I could wear with the skirt to make it also appear to be a dress. But, the fabric is so good, that I did not want to waste it on either of those two options and decided instead to make something that I could wear with some jeans or shorts. This tunic was very easy and did not require much planning or work. Just a lot of hemming, some ties, and a neckline.
You can see in the two pictures below the direction of the squares between the skirt, and the tunic. The tunic looks more like diamond shapes, while the skirt looks like squares. I had to cut the tunic on a different grainline to give me more fabric to use for the tunic.
Needless to say, the finished tunic is fab, and I love it as much as I love the skirt. Both pieces will be worn often and for years to come. It is another beautiful reminder of why I sew. Because I can sew what I like, when I like. As much as I like. You gotta love that!
That’s a wrap for now, but I can’t wait to show you a new project, pattern, or DIY something. Thank you for allowing me to share this patchwork print tunic with you this week.
