I’ve had this fabric forever and never wanted to use it because I loved it so much. But when I saw this pattern on the www.burdafashion.com website, I just knew I had to do it. It’s a little tight around my thighs, so I just hike up the bottom and fold it over so it’s a shirt! I modified the sleeves to make them more of a winged shape because I thought it would look a little more interesting.
P.S. Never mind my face… it was sunny outside and my boyfriend isn’t a big fan of taking pictures so I didn’t get to be picky about the poses :(
