So I had this tunic that I thrifted a long time ago, but never used as-is:
I then took the top part and laid it flat on a t-shirt I'd also thrifted because I needed an orange strip for my Pride top earlier this year. I cut a rough sleeveless top out of the orange t-shirt:
Then I ripped the sleeves off of the tunic...
...sewed the side seams of the orange top, and inserted the sleeves:
Then, once the top was done I attached it to the bottom half of the tunic:
The waist part was a bit loose-fitting, so I also added an elastic band, and since I couldn't match the waist seam exactly it was visible from the outside. Since I am lazy and didn't want to fix that, I simply added a belt:
The dress is still a bit short for me (you know, giant), I'm still thinking about adding a strip of fabric on the hem to make it longer, but I didn't have anything at hand that A) would match the gray and orange fabrics and B) would be suitable material to sew on the hem. So I'm thinking about a trip to the Goodwill store to see if they have any nice fabric lying around.
Now I'm thinking about making a dress for Christmas. We'll see how that goes. :D
PS. If you have snow, send it my way, please. This no-snow December thing is so depressing.
