Sewing project: Summer tunic top

After making so many dresses, I got bored and decided I wanted to do a top and a bottom.  After going through several patterns, I found one for free online called the summer tunic.  It reminded of the Hummingbird dress a bit but the directions were slightly different.  Some parts of the tutorial really confused me that I ended up doing things my own way half the time.  I think it turned out okay though!

What I really like about home sewing is that one metre of fabric can translate into so many clothes.  I made these tunic tops from leftover fabric so you are bound to find some of the material familiar.

I don’t have material to make bottoms yet.  I plan to make bloomer shorts to match the tunic tops so I have to do some fabric shopping before I get started on that next.  Bloomer shorts are easy peasy, so i just have to find the fabric first.
