The Refashioners: Denim Tunic

When I began to disassemble these old jeans for Portia's "jeanius" challenge and I removed the back pockets, I knew immediately I had to incorporate the unfaded, ombre denim from underneath them into my final garment.

I decided to make a simple tunic featuring the ombre block as the bib.

Then I also reused the original pockets as the facings on the side slits.

This tunic is simple but so effective, the pocket treatment is inspired.

I love this. The placement of the pocket and the old pocket is genius!
