So we did end up purchasing the tunic at the thrift store even though we try to keep our Mad Scientist projects to only things from around the house but it was a $1 and I sometimes would rather rise to the challenge of altering a garment than making something from scratch.
|The tunic was a pull over the head type deal and was sewn down the faux leather part in the front.|
|We wanted a jacket instead so we cut the stitches down the center to separate the pieces and found this belt at the thrift store.|
|I just put 3 belt loops (1 in the back and 1 on either side) of scrap pieces of brown linen and voila instant cool viking looking jacket.|
More on the unique handmade mask in a later post.
