Description

This was made out of an old bed sheet from Urban Outfitters. I stopped using it when I got married out of respect for my husbands masculinity, but I have been in love with the print from before I bought it.
I modified a pattern from a Japanese Pattern book to make it a bit more form fitting (side back pleats)
I am in love with the dropped sleeves found in a lot of Japanese patterns.

Material Notes

Cotton Bed Sheet, Fusible Interfacing, Stylish Dress Book

Difficulty

Novice

Stylish Dress Book, Urban Outfitters, and ER (I listened to the last season while working on this project!)
