Palo Alto, Calif...
I had this material in my stash for a while. I am not sure of the length, but it was less than a yard. I cut it into 4 rectangles (2 of each size) and sewed them together with a very narrow seam. To make the arm hole, I just curved the seam up and left it open at the top. I used homemade bias tape on the neckline, but the sleeves and hem are unfinished. There is a seam that goes right across the center of my bust, and it is a bit weird – next time, I will be a little more strict with my measurements.
