The “1970s cover up” tunic | Sarah Gabbart
Total Cost: $10
I'm a huge fan of platform shoes, wide leg pants and anything made of rattan, but my dive into the 1970s took a huge turn to wearable blanket land. So. Hot. To. Wear.
It also has the shape of a potato sack and needed to be taken in with a belt, but that's not the biggest deal in the world!
The fabric is a heavy cotton shower curtian I found at Target for $9.99 and the pattern was part of a lot of vintage patterns I bought on Etsy a few years back. It was incredibly easy to put together and the sewn edges of the shower curtian made hemming the sleeves and the bottom of the tunic unnecessary. I heart skipping steps!
Girl's pool day* seemed like a wonderful time to break out this 1970s gem – it works perfectly as a swimsuit coverup. That is, until you go outside in the 100 degree heat and realize – this is a shower curtian. It's meant to keep moisture and heat in! So boo to that. I am going to have to save this one for winter…
*Big thank you to Erin's parents – Cyndi and Mike – for hosting us for such a fun day of swimming, sandwiches and awesome movies!
