It's tunic time...part three!

Tunic number three in my series was made from a t-shirt and skirt.  I liked the black and cream combination of the printed t-shirt and the gingham skirt.


I started by cutting off the lower section of the skirt.  The remaining skirt (not pictured) was long enough that I able to hem it and still use it...so this refashion was a two-fer!


With the skirt scraps, I cut a "shirt tail" piece and attached it 
to the bottom edge of the t-shirt.


I cut a Peter Pan collar and added it to the neckline.  I also added a faux button placket and a couple of buttons to the front.


I paired it with a black pencil skirt, boots, and wool jacket.

I have a button-down white blouse that is a bit short. I've been thinking of remaking it to appear that there is a layer underneath it. Thanks for giving me the courage to maybe give it a try!

This is such a great use of different fabrics together. It came out so nice, it looks great on you.
