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)

Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
