#7 August Back to School: Lace added to Tunic

GOAL: Refashion 10 Items for August Back to School. 

This is #7.

*I pledge not to buy anything RTW or thrifted for my new job and Back to Elementary School Wardrobe, 
I plan to make it through the school year.
*I am shopping from my closet.
*Dress is business-casual to very casual.

BEFORE: From the closet. Thin two-layer gauze tunic. Lace from the stash.
I wanted to take it up a notch and to copy the "more lace is better" look popular in my new school 

STEPS: Sewed  2 strips of stash lace side by side to make a wider lace.
Edged the turned up cuff and the hem.

AFTER: Very fast and easy refashion. Worn today with black maxi broomstick skirt.

2 strips of lace
stitched side by side
