Austin, Texas, U...
I bought this horrible Lauren Ralph Lauren shirt at a vintage store’s sidewalk sale just for the fabric. (The store was Blue Velvet, for anyone familiar with awesome Austin shops.) It’s a really lovely peach cotton and very soft. The pattern, I drafted from a cute pair of purchased undies. I learned how to finish edges without a serger on burdastyle. I used lingerie elastic for the waistband and thread elastic to make the ruffles around the front. While making this, I listened to two very solid episodes of This American Life: 281 My Big Break and 347 Matchmaker.
