This tunic began life as an old Lands End knit dress that belonged to my daughter. It’s been languishing in a laundry basket for about three years, but I couldn’t bear to throw it away, because it was nice knit material. It was (ahem!) too small to wear in its current state.
I cut it down the front and added a border to the opening. The border is made from two folded-over strips of cotton fabric that covered the rough edge. I top-stitched the border so it would lie flat. I haven’t decided if I’ll do anything to the sleeves, which are three-quarter length, but it’ll work in warmer weather over a tank top & jeans. And I have that nice glow of virtue (I recycled something!) to keep me warm in this freezing weather.
