Description

I made this from a men’s silk dress shirt I bought at a liquidation sale. The pattern is the 1960’s Tunic Dress from the book Chic and Simple Sewing (made into a shirt). I made the collar smaller and added buttons for a better fit. I used the front of the dress shirt for the back of my shirt, so there is a seam down the back. I also kept the hem, so I didn’t have to hem it myself.
