3-way styling for pillowcase

 Started with this amazing print - an oversized pillowcase printed in the Ivory Coast.

 Cut out neck and arm holes...

To make this tunic style top! Kept playing around with it though, when I found a drawstring around the other end...

 I make a second hole halfway down my front, and pulled the drawstring through to create a 'ruched' effect, or a slight sweetheart neckline. Seen here, the dress is still with and without a belt.

 Finally (and I think I like this styling best!) here it is as a maxi skirt, tied at the top with a drawstring. The lesson here is not to pass on pillowcases at the thrift shop! LOL
