Quickly and simply a tunic or poncho with your own hands.
This kind of clothing fell in love with women all over the world in time immemorial, and since then, never went out of fashion. And a poncho, and a tunic, will suit a woman of any age and with any figure.
You can sew a tunic for the house, but it is possible for a solemn occasion. You can choose light, weightless, for the heat, or you can warm up - it will protect you in cooler weather. Depending on the purpose, choose the fabric and thread.
Another plus of this model - from one piece of fabric you can sew two things.Maybe it will be a tunic and a poncho, or maybe a second one, you'll go to give your daughter, mom or girlfriend. But, you see, in any case, it's very nice - instead of one thing to get two.
So. You will need a square cut of fabric and a skein of threads. The length of the square corresponds to the reach of the arms from the wrist to the wrist.You should determine the yarn consumption yourself, based on its length and the knitting pattern you have chosen.
Creating the most poncho or tunic you see in the picture below.
It's very simple: you can cut the canvas into strips and cut them carefully.Remove all the even numbers and sew on the free places of the strip that you will link. Those bands that you deleted - fold into a new square at intervals.This is the basis for the second thing. If you decide to leave both models to yourself, you can tie strips of a different color or other pattern.
For those who do not like or do not know how to knit - there is also a way out: today you can buy ready-made knitted ribbons, lace or canvas, from which you can cut the right size strips.
Actually, the poncho is already ready for you. If you want to sew a tunic, there is still another simple operation. Pull the ponchos on your shoulders, fix with pins and mark with chalk, what you want to see the sleeves.
It remains to remove, cut out the triangles and make two seams. Everything, the tunic is ready.
Do not be saddened by the fact that part of the canvas had to be cut off. Look closely at these triangles - from them you can perfectly make a very stylish handbag that will blend in with your poncho or tunic.
With a new thing to you!
