A chemise made out of old bed sheets to be used as Pjs when I larp. This is my first go at the pattern and my first sewing in a long time. So it looks pretty lousy. My goal is to get this chemise (and eventually corset) up to a good quality. So you’ll be seeing it again. Think of this as an “in progress” project.
300 count cotton bed sheets. Nothing beats prototype sewing like cheap bedsheets. Light colored ones also make great cloth for patterns.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
