This tunic/dress was absolutely fine, it just wasn't me.
I cut the bodice and the skirt apart, hemmed both, added a casing and elastic to the skirt.
Thep process took about 10 minutes, and now I have two pieces of clothing, that will get a lot more wear by me.
Top. I wasn't sure if it would work, but it does and serves as a kind of bolero/shrug.
