What do you do with six yards of blue fabric that has been sitting in your closet for years? Well, I finally decided that I was going to create an outfit with the material because frankly, I was just tired of looking at it. I knew I wanted a cute outfit that I could put on to run errands in or meet friends for lunch without looking too dressed up. These days I like to be loose and comfortable at all times. Henceforth, the long sleeve, asymmetrical semi-loose fitted knit tunic blouse.
I used the fabric to make my first test sample. I love how simple yet stylish this outfit is.
I only used a little over 1 yard of fabric to make the shirt. Then I altered a commercial pants pattern to make the coordinating elastic waistline pants. What started out as a project for me to get rid of some old fabric, turn into a stylish outfit that I am in love with.
Best of all, I had these shoes in my closet for over a year and I had never worn them. I tried them on with this outfit and I must admit, I was very impressed with the finish look.
Can you tell that I am really digging this outfit?
I love this blouse so much that I decided to make a d.i.y. video of the project so that I can show you how to make this semi-loose fitted asymmetrical blouse. In the video, I am going to show you how to take a t-shirt that you already have at home and use it as an outline to create the tunic blouse.
One of the great things about this shirt is that you can easily dress it up or dress it down. In the video, I used this gray knit fabric to make the shirt. I paired the finished garment with some denim jeans for a fun, playful look.
You may notice that the gray shirt is longer than the blue shirt. I am pointing this out so that you can see that you can make your shirt long or short. In the video, I do go back and change the length of the gray shirt so that it is the same length as the blue shirt.
