Spent a day changing an old beach cover-up into a tunic top. A white embroidered cotton fabric thingy. I removed the collar, cuffs, pockets, belt loops, buttons and side slits. Added pale dove gray embroidered cotton side inserts and trim at the sleeve edges. Made the collar Mandarin and the buttons gray. Assorted challenges came and went.
Put together an ensemble around which to wear it today. Then noticed everything I had on was made/ refashioned by me in the last 6 months: vest, tunic, necklace, skirt, pantaloons and boots. la-de-dah! And I have the pix to prove it.
