I have had this fabric for ages, it's an old curtain bought for £2 in a charity shop. Who says blondes can't wear yellow?
Anyway ... this is a really simple tunic to make. I did the cutting out last night and put the main bits together using the 4 thread overlock stitch. Then I went to bed because it was past midnight and I forsaw mistakes and swearing.
Usually, I would stitch, then trim, then overlock both edges. This does all three steps in one. And it's soooo quick!
For the belt, I just cut a thick strip, pressed in half and roll hemmed the edges. I used yellow and white threads for this effect.
And here it is!
I just love how it has turned out. I still used my regular machine for the yoke, but used the rolled hem around the arms and used the overlock stitch on the lining hem. I didn't need to hem the outer piece because I was sneaky and used the existing curtain hemming.
