Isn't sewing fun? Last post, we covered haute hostess aprons and this one is about sewing a hooded tunic dress out of a man's XXL hooded sweatshirt and a little elastic. This tunic dress has short sleeves and an origami pleat in the back.
I think I will make up a sample for the college kids "Sewing Cafe" class. It's definitely not something that my senior citizen friends would wear, but I can see some of the teens in it.
Mike Gonzalez demonstrates all the details on How To Make A Hooded Tunic Dress in his sewing video. He also provides written instructions.
Mike suggests that you wear this hooded tunic or dress with leggings or skinny jeans.
Instead of handsewing, I prefer sewing the seams by sewing machine or serger so that they hold up better in wearing and laundering.
Mike leaves the bottom ribbing on the hooded tunic dress. You might think about removing it and adding a decorative fun trim around the bottom or making a lettuce edge or binding the bottom and the sleeve edges with a novelty print fabric.
Have some fun with it. It's a good way to recycle that huge bulky sweatshirt into a fashion statement.
It just makes sense!
