Mulberry Tunic as a Dress

I wanted to make a dress version of my pattern for Willow and Co.,  Mulberry tunic, for  a while. I thought it would be an easy remix, and the result will be cute. I was right. :)


The modifications were easy to make. I cut the lower front bodice and the back bodice where the hem curves and added the length I wanted. I also added tiny ties at the back. I am not sure if I like it with the ties or without the ties.




The turquoise fabric is a leftover piece from the sample I made for the collection (you can purchase it here). The embroidered fabric is from a towel I got from an old lady at the garage sale. It was brand new, used as part of a d├ęcor. The lady was super sweet and had quite a few embroidered things. I got them all. :)


The child absolutely refused to give up her sippy cup. Believe me, I tried to pry her hands open. No luck. You win some you lose some. :)



Off she goes. The dress is easy and comfortable. I am quite pleased with the result.
