I made this asian style dress, but then, I thought I'd have more opportunity to wear it places if I cut it off into a shirt, like a long tunic Tongue

Whoa!  I did the same thing to mine!  Just a question...did you use a pattern and which one did you use if?  I made a dress very similar to this and the collar/neck binding was the bane of my existence for a few days.  Any info you have would be helpful, and very nice job....your stitching is excellent!

SoozyDoozy, I did use a pattern, I think it was New Look 6615.  The collar/neck was definately the hardest part..getting it to lay right after it was done was frustrating (still is).  I also ended up adding a panel of the green fabric under the neckline because it was a bit more revealing than I like.  I want to make a couple more of these, a bit more 'casual' in style though.
