Tunic

Tie-dye tunic
Blues
Linen
Yesterday I went all Project Runway and tie-dyed some beautiful aqua
Globalweave linen I had stashed from Purl Soho and sewed myself a tunic
based on one I bought on Etsy three years ago from Linumgirl.
I eyeballed the pattern (I had never made a garment before)
so it's a little different but I'm really happy with my new hippie top.

Totally beautiful! I'd love to use it as a cover-up while sipping lemonade next to a pool!

This is gorgeous. I admire your bravery. I have many pieces of special fabric that I am just too scared to cut into, even with a pattern. I love that you just eyeballed it and it looks so great!

It's beautiful. The dye has really taken and if that truly is your first time at making a garment, well done, looks great.

What a beautiful tunic and tie-dye job! It reminds me of the indigo-dye technique from my province in China. I've been meaning to take a workshop on learning the Bai dye method. I can't seem to find a good link for it, but here's an example: http://www.minpaku.ac.jp/english/museum/exhibition/china/pe.html

Geninne, I really love how prolific you are with your blog posts, your projects, your ideas, etc. I think bloggers like you are visited very often because people like me NEED to see interesting new things all the time. There are some successful businesswomen out there who have blogs but do not post regularly, though they keep their FB pages up-to-date with their latest products/events, which is quite disappointing, and it's really heartening to see bloggers like you really pulling in your readers with such fresh ideas, ALL THE TIME. No wonder your little business seems to be growing in leaps and bounds! Keep up the beautiful work...you inspire so many people from all over the world!
