One Busy Summer = A No-Sew Tunic!

This summer has been filled with vacations, weddings, girl's camp, baby showers, camping trips, and lots of tractor work!  I have had little time to sew, but did manage a no-sew refashion.  I just love those!!  I didn't even take the time to shoot before pictures because there was really no change to the items, just a bit of layering.

I have been loving tunics and this one is no exception.  I found a bright floral t-shirt that I loved, but it was bit too short.  At the same time, I found a silky polka dot tank top, but it was a bit too loose.  My original plan was to cut off the lower portion of the tank top and stitch it to the bottom of the t-shirt.  That plan alone would have been a super simple refashion.  But, then the idea came to just layer the two and not stitch at all.  I love it when inspiration strikes!  Because they were kept separate, the two tops have the added bonus of future mixing and matching.










This whole outfit came in at under $30!

T-shirt $1.50
Tank top $1.50
Denim Jacket $3.00
Jeggings $7.00
Leather sandals $8.00
Watch $2.00
Necklace $3.00
Basket purse $3.00

I like to link to these great parties!

  1. Really cute combo. I like that you share how much that you paid for each item and would love to see close-ups of the jewelry, handbag, and shoes on your posts :)

  2. I'm becoming more confident layering clothing, but I do need to step more out of my comfort zone. I love the combination of the polka dots with the floral. I would never have thought to pair them together, but they work so well. I've featured your no sew tunic today, Susan.

    1. Thanks Pam! I'm on the lookout for more pairings considering this was a super simple refashion!
