A disaster tunic with sheer fabric

I'm now learning to make ePattern (you can check my progress here) and I made a basic tunic pattern. I have always been thinking of making something with sheer fabric and I thought perfect to give it a try. Let me tell you, it was a disaster. Total !!
Sorry I took the photos in bright sun, you can hardly make out. It kind of looks ok in photos but really bad it was. It has collars and I didn't use any interfacing there. I don't know what was in my mind.  It is so short - had I made it shorter it could be a top but then I'll have to do something with the collar.

1. Always Interface collars
2. I made a slit on the back for buttons and it was really easy and quick to do.

Had been to fabric shopping today. Oh what fun!! Have just put them for a quick wash. I'll show them to you  tomorrow. I actually went shopping for nighty fabric and have brought back whole lot of linen fabric. They were so good I couldn't resist. I'm just thinking the nighty hardly looks like a nighty so I could as well use the same patten out of linen that can be worn outside as well. ;) Is that cheating? :)

    1. Appliqquuee!! I'm not there yet Jaya. baby steps I'm taking. :) This tunic is fine with trousers but with tights the seams on the bottom show - this is what I meant by short. :)
