Gave it the chop!!

This top started its journey with me as part of a stash of vintage fabric gifted to me by a casual acquaintance. I first made a dress out of it using my Audrey Dress pattern. It was fully lined and I wore it for several years. About a year ago I shortened it to a tunic length and wore it with pants. This afternoon I shortened it again so I could wear it as a tuck in top.

I also removed the lining to make it cooler to wear. This third version is my favourite and I think it will now be a popular garment in my wardrobe. Reinventing rarely-worn garments that you already own saves $$$ and helps eliminate textile waste…plus it is good for the soul!!!
