I made a shirt from a vintage sheet.

Well that didn't take me long to do. I just purchased this vintage sheet and right away it was calling my name saying please please make me into something. So i did. I made this shirt using a simplicity sewing pattern and a vintage sheet. I will never make this top again. Or should I say neckline. It was annoying and I did take it apart and sew it 3 separate times. Its still a tad crooked but you wouldn't know where unless I pointed it out. Also I changed the pattern a bit. For the belt they wanted you to sew the belt into the shirt and then tie in the front or back. I thought that looked a little too maternity-ish for me. So I made small loops and sewn those into the shirt and made the tie extra longer so I could tie it at the waist. Its really comfy to wear. Its really soft. I must say I never wore a sheet as clothing before but I love it. Its the perfect fabric for this hot summer 2009. I love it and will wear it again and be proud of my handmade repurposed vintage sheet.
