Remember the lovely hawthorn dress I finished earlier this week? I had some remnant chambray left and I wanted to turn the into a long sleeve shirt for myself. But there isn’t sufficient yardage left, so I choose a Japanese floral cotton from my stash for a little bit of contrast. This Japanese cotton is brought many years back, and is so precious that I could not bring myself to cut into it. But enough is enough, I just couldn’t resist mixing it with this chambray for my new shirt.

Materials used: Remnant chambray shirting from my hawthorn dress, jap cotton, red buttons and interfacing.
