Striped Jumper to Striped Tunic!

I found this striped jumper the other day at a thrift store and really liked the cotton stretch fabric, the button front, and the stripes.  I didn't like, however, much of anything else.  


I thought with a little bit of rearranging, it would make a fun and comfortable tunic.  I cut away the skirt and used the fabric to lengthen the bodice and add sleeves.


I thought that changing the direction of the stripes on the added piece would make things interesting.


I made the back addition slightly longer than the front.


It was a pretty simple transformation, but now it's much more wearable!

I like to link to these great parties!
