Whoops, I posted this on my blog/flickr a few weeks ago, but neglected to post in here on my precious craftster! There isn't much to say about this, it's really very, very simple.  It's a basic T-tunic (http://www.dagorhir.com/HowTo/DagorhirTunic.htm) made from an old table cloth and 4 old napkins (thank you grandma!). I wish I'd taken a before picture, but now it's way too late!!  The tablecloth makes up the upper part, and the 4 napkins are cut and arranged to make the skirt area.  The neck in faced with matching raw silk, but this can really be anything so long as the drape matches the body fabric.

I encourage you all to try making something like this, it's so easy! I usually don't think tent-like things are flattering on most body shapes but throw a belt on that sucker and see how pretty it looks!


Holy flipping cow. I changed my profile picture after 4 years on here.

I love this idea, i tried months ago in the summer actually to make one of those type of things and it didn't turn out so well it was really hot and i was frusterated and i think the material was way to heavy for clothing, so I decided not to make it anymore, i'm going to try again with something lighter.

Thanks for giving me another style type to try making.

Very good job. Grin

I love this so much.  I love tunics, but I have a hard time finding them in fabrics I like.  I love the tablecloth you used.  Great job.  Oh and thanks for the link to the tute!
