A Quick Tunic Refashion

June 22, 2015Sheri Pavlović

Refashioning munchkin gear is an awesome way to stretch a few more months of wear out of those nearly outgrown clothes and can transform hand-me-downs into fantastic one of a kind fashions your kiddo will love!

Take a peek at my latest munchkin make, a quick tunic refashion, and see just how easy it is!

I grabbed a too-short-in-the-arms tunic and a few leftover scraps of wide lace.

Chopped off the sleeves and elastic waist.

Stitched the lace scraps together into a tube the same width as the chopped bottom of the tunic.

Popped the lace tube over the bottom of the tunic with right sides facing and edges lined up.

Stitched together.

Zigzagged over the outside seam for extra strength and repeated the process with the sleeves.

That too short tunic is now a pretty top that *should* fit for the summer, provided another crazy growth spurt doesn’t occur!

This technique would also work wonderfully with grown-up gear!

    Love this top. My son is a dad himself so no little girl that age yet to make one for. You might like to look at my idea to make a blouse out of a skirt.

    Take N bias cut skirt, mine had narrow elastic waist, unpick side Sean as deep as your armholes, hem and wear!!!!! The neck is a little baggy but if you wanted you could cut off the elastic and hem for a cowl effect. Let me know what you think.
