It’s a thigh long tunic top that is light enough to wear on hot days, but also protects against sun and unwanted stares. It has a drawstring in the back to give it a bit of shape. It’s meant to be a comfortable piece to hang out in, but I could imagine making a more dressy one from some more fancy material.
I borrowed an overlocker for the sleeve and neck seams and discovered that these things are really hard to use.
Thin cotton, it’s a bit shiny and crinkles easily, I have no idea what the official name is.
My friend bought one like this in India and I borrowed it for a holiday. I loved it so much that I wanted one for myself, so I copied it.
Credits go to my friend for buying it and lending it to me and to the person in India who made it ;)
