To make this tunic for Clare, I revisited a dress I had made for an exhibition called How You Make It. The exhibition finished touring last year, and with the garments recently returned to me, I decided to re-work one of the pieces.
To make the original dress, I pulled apart a dressing gown and made facings from a silk chemise. For Clare's version I pulled all the pieces apart again and turned the facings toward the outside. There are roulo ties at the neck and sides, and hooks and eyes at the front.
