collected all my dads shirts that I havent seen him wearing in a while.
for the tunic I used the burda pattern Margarete, made it longer and wider, changed the seams to diagonal ones and kept some of the buttons from the shirt. I also draped new sleeves for the top.
for the skirt I used the burda pattern Sidonie. i changed the zipper i the back to shirt-like buttons and made the belt out of the cuffs of the shirts.
on top of that I made a wrinkled flounce, made the hem wavy by keeping the hem from different shirts…
can be worn separate or together as a dress.
