My latest sewing achievement is this shirt-dress with hip yoke which, due to a lack of fabric, turned into an asymmetric shirt.

I chose to work with this delightful NaniIro fabric from my stash. The pattern required 2.25 metres of 140-centimetre-wide fabric. However, the two-metre cut I wanted to use measured only 106 centimetres across. It took me a while to play with placement of the pattern pieces, but in the end, I managed to save on the length of the garment, the sleeves and the collar.
