Cotton tunic

Cotton tunic, originally uploaded by Chinkypin.

Cotton tunic

This is a copy of a vintage men's shirt, possibly a costume, which was given to me by my sister. The original is made in a heavy, striped ticking material. I made this out of white batiste, because I wanted something lightweight and summery that was very relaxed and comfortable, but still elegant. It looks much stiffer on the mannequin than it really is, due to the mannequin having much squarer shoulders than me.
