i made a tunic... unintentionally

I have had this pretty green jersey fabric sitting around for months. Originally I bought it to make a skirt but I eventually decided I really wanted to make a dress. I should have stuck to my original plan for a skirt because a dress... this particular dress, was way beyond my beginner skills and my "dress" ended up being a long tunic.

 earrings: violet bella // tunic: made by me // leggings: kohls // boots: old navy

I didn't get a great picture of the front but it has a sort of "wrap" skirt effect, with rounded sides. The mistake I made was that I didn't overlap the ends enough and because it is rounded, it is way too short. It should have had (at least) an 8" overlap but for some strange reason I only did 2"! Other than that I think I did a pretty good job. I definitely need to have a much simpler pattern for my next dress, oh yeah... another mistake I made... no pattern! I'm just that good (or not).

  6. Love it! So pretty! I just recently started to sew :) I made a blouse and I made a mistake (oops) I had to cover it with a fabric flower but it looks good, the flower was a great addition :) Thanks for linking up to the Less Laundry, More Linking party.
