Dress to Tunic


My sister gave me this dress. I rarely wear dresses, so I re-made it into a top.

First, I removed the sleeves and hemmed the armholes. Then I shortened it by 8.5 inches.

The result is a long top, or tunic. I am tall, and finding long shirts is often problematic for me. This easy refashion will get lots of wear from me, probably as a layering piece like in the picture.

Especially with the thin fabric. Thin fabric and my bodyshape doesnt go for skirts! Refashioning is such a useful skill to have

Nice job, especially when you have troubles finding a shirt long enough.
