I love tunics don’t you?!
They are by far my favorite item of clothing as they are so versatile, the possibilities are endless. They can be glam-ed up for an occasion or worn casually with jeans. I love the fact that this type of top is long enough to cover the bum, which makes it ideal for hijabis!
Did you know that the word Tunic is actually a french word? “Tunique” means long blouse and because I am half French I say it with a french twist of “tunique” is just so chic! Oh la la
I was on pinterest pinning tunic tutorials because I have caught the sewing bug and want to make some tunics, whilst searching them I noticed that the free tutorials/patterns are hard to find.
You will find many beautiful patterns that you had to buy to make but not many that are free for a novice such as myself to try.
Therefore was super excited to find these 6 tutorials below and simply had to share.
1. This high lo shirt pattern by Melly Sews could be dressed up or down depending on the fabrics you choose to make it with.
2. I simply love how Sally author of The Quirky Peach altered the Plantain T-shirt by Deer and Doe (which is free btw) to create this tunic. It is made from jersey material which can be tricky to work with which is why they recommend using a ball point needle.
3. Fell in love with this boxy dress which Liz of Cotton and Curls made, simple and chic my kind of style!
4. Ohh I cant wait to make this Shirt Dress by Vanessa of Camelot Fabrics with 3/4 sleeves and the trim at the bottom is a great way to give it some character, love, love, love it!
5. Merrick nailed it with this tutorial on the perfect summer swing dress, just discovered her blog and totally adore her style & blog!
6. Who would have thought that this peasant top made by Mirdith of Strictly Homemade was made from vintage fabric which she had lying around?.
Head over to her blog to find out hows she made it and how you can make one too.
This complets the list of 6 tutorials that I wanted to share, these should give you a good start if you were thinking of making your own tunique.
So tell me which one was your favorite?
