#3 August Back to School Yellow Tunic

GOAL: Refashion 10 Items for August Back to School Wardrobe. It is HOT in Texas. This is #3.

Back to School Wardrobe:
*Retired from University and I return to Elementary School in one week.
*Dress is business-casual to very casual.
*I will Up-cycle from my University Pre-retirement work stash.

BEFORE: Thin Linen - Yellow Tunic from the casual wardrobe. It was Refashioned last summer and was shortened and old lace was removed.
STEPS: Trims from the stash were auditioned. The wider green/yellow was top-stitched onto the tunic. Additional top stitching was added at the neckline.

AFTER: New trim perks this older top up. Ready to wear on casual days at Elementary School.

I love the green. It really perks up the yellow top.
