Description

was once a king size pillowcase,
is now a fancy little ruffle top!
(you can tell by the huge hem on the bottom,
looks a little like a pillowcase…)

no official pattern used,
made one up based off an old shirt i love.

    I think the big hem down the bottom only adds to the top, can’t tell it was ever a pillowcase! Very smart idea, I feel like raiding the linen cupboard now

    I never would’ve guessed it was a pillowcase in its former life til I saw that hem. Don’t point it out to people and they’ll never know. Or do, and they’ll be crazy impressed.
