I made this from a vintage pattern a friend gave me recently—McCall’s 7471. I didn’t think much of it when I set out to make it, but I ended up being really happy with how it turned out. It is made from all recycled/thrifted material. The black material is silk linen. There wasn’t quite enough for the sleeves too, so I cut up a linen shirt (which I had previously taken apart to make a pattern from). The buttons are salvaged from another thrifted shirt. I didn’t notice until I had started sewing that it was a maternity pattern, but I kind of like the tent shape of it! :)
