Simple Black and White Tunic Makeover

.HiIMG_2222 BEFORE

Hi Everyone!

It all started with this 3x beauty which appeared to have never been worn. It was a nice piece from "The Black and White Market," and I am sure the original owner paid a handsome sum for it. As for me, I paid $5.99 for all of that beautiful print!

AFTER!

 

It was only a simple resizing job but I think I can pass along some valuable tips on how to downsize these plus size treasures. You can see I have paired the tunic with leggings and ballet flats. This is totally comfortable, chic, and work appropriate for me. Sorry for the blurry picture, but I had a hard time stopping long enough to get it taken. This was my first day back to work after the holiday.

See the entire tutorial here.

'til next time,


Love ya,

Mary
