My fiance refers to this as my badass shirt (I think he’s secretly jealous that I didn’t make a shirt for him with this fabric). This is made from the Sew U book’s shirt pattern (which I would highly recommend).
An old sheet purchased at the goodwill surplus shop ($1 per pound).
Sew U for the pattern and instructions.
JJ for the tip on seam allowances.
My sister, Hannahlee, for helping me rummage through some pretty disgusting goodwill bins (we actually found a pair of dirty underpants in one of the bins!).
