The Bewitched Bedsheet TunicAugust 24, 2011
Why is this bewitched? Because it took a little magic to create!
…meh…not my best witticism but it’ll do…onto the how-to!
Take an old jersey – or cotton – bed sheet. (Mine was a fitted sheet so I had to chop off all of the elastic edges) Cut the length to 140cm & the width to 70cm. Fold it in half & lay it on a flat surface with the fold at the top. You’re sheet should now be 70cm x 70cm.
Grab a loose-fitting t-shirt & center it on your sheet with the neck at the folded edge. Pin the sheet at each side of the t-shirt neck & underarm of the sleeves – or just use my measurements in the photo. *You’ll eventually sew down from the side pins creating the tunic…but first…
Cutting through only the top layer of the sheet snip from one of your neckline pins down to the center mark, then up to the other neckline pin & finally back across the folded edge to the original pin. Et Voila! A lovely V-neck!
As my sheet was made of jersey I could have left the neckline, sleeves & hem with raw edges but decided to use my foldy-foot (actual name: rolled hem foot) to finish off the tunic.
