Another Tunic

When working on my combat series I found a number of fatigue skirts and pants which I had purchased many years ago at a second hand store, thinking then to create large boho bags from them.

They have been sitting in the "to do" pile for a number of years and when sorting I saw the pieces with many pockets.

I added some corduroy fabrics and some olive green fabrics to the mix.

I am in a tunic frame of mind and I envisioned a rustic pocket ful cowl neck tunic.

So I began to build a structure and this is what I came up with using the pieces that I had.

Pockets all over, even close to the hem

Its too hot to wear now but will serve me well as a layering piece in winter with many pockets of course
