Shirred Tunic Top (Upcycled)

Added Mar 24, 2009

Qld, Australia






I bought a shirred tube top when I was pregnant, but couldnt wear it comfortably as a tube top (it is always sliding down from my chest)… I upcycled it to a tunic by adding a rectangle of spare chiffon fabric and added it at the top end. I am actually planning on cutting the sleeves a bit to make it 3/4 and add an elastic on the arm band (I need to find time to do that)

Material Notes

old shirred top, scrap chiffon fabric

    This is lovely. The placement flowers on the top give it a very classical look. Good Job!

    oh, this is nice. Did you use the top half of a dress? It looks like the same fabric as the bottom of your cocktail dress. Very nice :)
