Speed Tunic

This Tuesday I and my family are driving up to Maryland to meet with all the other PenKnights.



No, I'm not packed yet. I'm a last minute packer. It's worked so far. But I have managed to get together all the costumes in a big tub to bring up there with us. We have a lot of cosutmes, the majority of them handmade for various movies or Imagination Games in the past. I'm praying the tub will fit in the van.

As well, I worked on a couple of long tunics that turned out pretty well, I thought. Once again, super duper easy pattern. Really, I just cut out two long rectangles and sewed them together at the top and sides, leaving holes for the head and arms. Bing, bam, boom, tunic.

This is another of my sisters, Rosi Grymm.
She's our librarian. I'll introduce her later.

Very bad picture quality, but they were last minute. I also made a tunic in a sea green color, too. Exact same style. That belt is my absolute favorite belt in the whole wide world EVER. I bought it from Maurices (<3) and it's been an accent to many an outfit and costume alike.

So I should go eat supper now. Yup.

Dia duit,


  1. I want to make my first costume, and I want to find a pattern for a long tunic like this, but I haven't been able to find anything online. I have never done sewing before or making clothes or costumes before. So do you still maybe have sketches of this pattern that I could look at, or be able to sketch one up quickly for me? It would be greatly appreciated if you could!

    1. I'd be glad to. It's really nothing more than a rectangle folded in half with the sides sewn up and a hole cut in the top for your head, but I can draw it out if it'll make more sense that way.


Hey, thanks for visiting my blog! I love feedback so feel free to leave comment related to the post, or just to say hi. Dia duit!
