The Fuchsia Tunic

This fuchsia tunic was a pretty simple one.  It started with a lightweight gauzy dress I picked up 
for $1.  I loved the fabric, the color, and the potential!

The first step was to cut a new length and add a hem.

The neckline was a little too wide.  I fixed it by adding a small ruffle.  To hem the ruffle, I turned the raw edge under and stitched the edge with my machine's blanket stitch.  This created a bit of a scalloped edge.  I did the same treatment with the bottom hem of the tunic.

This tunic will be perfect for summer!
