UP-Cycle Memento Top - Blue Flounce Tunic
This Gallery contains full directions for:
Blue Flounce Tunic
ft-1 Front. Blue T is a purchased T re-cut from my Terrific T pattern.
ft-2 Back. Good view of uneven depth of lower flounce.
ft-3 Side view showing print tie detail at tunic line and sleeve. Note also double flounce at sleeve and shirring at back of sleeve.
ft-4 Design boards for ideas and initial sketch- which I actually rarely do (a sketch).
ft-5 Re-Cut purchased T using a basic knit pattrn and 'keeping' the original hemline. Decide length of this Tunic desired at the side seam in order to accurately set the pattern onto the 'fabric', maintaining this hemline.
ft-6 Cutting a lower neckline using template system.
ft-7 On this jersey, the right side curls to the wrong side.
ft-8 Consult the printed or PDF document for details.
ft-9 As I was cutting - I decided on an irregular flounce depth - be a DESIGNER!
ft-10 Creativity abounds - be even more original in the depth and shape for the flounces!
ft-11 Flounce cut into center so it will lay straight for application, but done with a curved cut.
ft-12 Right side of cross-cut strip of jersey curls to wrong side to create a nice trim unifying the colors.
ft-13 Work Shell Sticth over folded edge of T's ribbing. High tension and the needle NOT penetrating at the fold are the clues to success.
ft-14 Settings for Shell Stitch on Brother Quattro sewing machine.
ft-15 Zipper foot and left needle position used to stitch ribbing onto the neckline right side.
