Chocolate Tunic

Hello all !

This time, my refashion was for a special event with a group of girlfriends: A Chocolate Themed Evening !  Everything Chocolate, even the clothes !  Well, not a whole lot of brown in this lady's closet...  So, what better reason to sew a new piece to my tastes !!!

First things first: gotta get some raw material.  Off to Value Village  (my favorite spot !).  Here is what I started with:


A few ladies blouses in light fabric.

Here is what I came up with:




A very confortable and well fitting tunic just like this one.  Even though brown is NOT my favorite colour, I will definitely wear this one again !

If you want to see more on the process, please stop by on my blog: sewliltime !



Peace !

Claudia

Rozy: I use my scraps to fill poufs and cushions like no 18 in this post: http://sewliltime.blogspot.ca/2014/02/organizing-baby.html
