I got this dress for about $5 at Goodwill this past weekend. When I saw it, I loved the print and the colors, but didn't like the plain, A-line look. So I instantly had the idea to turn it into a slitted tunic.
First thing I did was cut the length to my thigh.
Next, I measured about how far on either side I wanted the slit to go up. I sliced about 14 inches.
I folded each side of the slit in twice and sewed it down. It's not the prettiest seam--I should have looked at more tutorials on how to do this before I actually did it. Either way, it got the job done.
Lastly, I folded up the raw bottom hem twice and sewed it down.
This got tricky. The seam on the edge was longer--maybe I should have hemmed the bottom first? So I had to tuck it in and sew it down.
And you're done!
I paired it with a dark gray skirt. It looks wonderful!
