Summer recap no 6 - Skirt to tunic with multi-season potential

 This piece was something I had lingering around for years. I bought this piece of fabric more than 10 years ago in Ljubljana, when I needed an instant swimming suit cover-up, and once I brought it home, I have converted it in a 'skirt' without making any cuts to the fabric. Several years later, I found that darts forming the waist of the skirt became disintegrated, and I was left with something that used to be a skirt.

The print being so fun and the fabric of good quality I decided to make the simplest choice - remove remaining darts and zipper carefully and make the boat neck dress-tunic. It is perfectly fun and I plan to keep it as multi-season piece which could liven up a dark autumn combination.

The colour of that fabric definitely works for 3 seasons. It is bright and fun and will enhance darker autumn colours. Good work!

I love the angled hem. Love the color and pattern of the dress!
