  1. Step 1 1

    You need a scarf that is wide enough to fit you, length depend whether you want it short or long. I recommend to use stretchy fabric.
    Mine is sheer stretchy with lovely paisely prints.

  2. Step 2 2

    Fold scarf in half, and measure from shoulder to under-bust plus 1.5cm for seam allowance. Mark and cut along.This will be the bodice.

  3. Step 3 3

    Now, take the bodice, fold it in half and cut along.

  4. Step 4 4

    You would have two pieces of bodice

  5. Step 5 5

    Serge or zig-zag raw edges, fold along edges and sew.

  6. Step 6 6

    Join bodice to skirt, right sides together, leave 3cm for elastic casing ; match sides and pin towards middle,overlap two bodices to form deep V-neck, gather the loose middle. Sounds confusing? hope these pics clarify how-to.

  7. Step 7 7

    It'd be like this:

  8. Step 8 8

    Repeat joining as above with the other bodice

  9. Step 9 9

    Sew both sides up to where you want the sleeve to be

  10. Step 10 10

    For the back, I overlap and sew along 10cm, but you can leave it as it is as deep-V

  11. Step 11 11

    Fold the casing downward and pull elastic in

  12. Step 12 12

    And, here it is..your new plunge tunic.You sure are a beach-chic with this.
