For the challenge we were given this week, I tried something a little different. I turned this drab nightgown into a fun Boho Chic tunic by dressing it up with decorative sewing stitches.
After I cut some length off, I began sewing decorative stitches around the neckline. I used a different color of thread for each row of stitches. I repeated this for the bottom hem.
Using the ruffle from the original hem of the nightgown, I made a breezy sleeve and sewed it into the armholes. Then, I continued with the decorative stitching down the front of my new shirt.
This was time consuming but a lot of fun. I go into greater detail on my site.
A lot of sewing machines have decorative stitches. Try them out & have a little fun with it :)
