One vintage pillowcase repurposed into a shirt!

I have been seeing lots of cute tops made from Sew Mama Sew's adorable and free tutorial on her blog. (right here). I just had to try to make one myself. And here it is. Now I did do a bit of altering to the pattern. I did not have enough fabric to work with to make the pleats on my shirt like she did. So I just gathered mine instead. I am in the process of making another one with pleats. I also thought how cute would this be for a dress? I must try it. I really loved this vintage pillowcase when I found it. I knew I had to do something really creative with it. Usually when I find something so pretty I can't cut into it or nothing is ever worthy enough of using the fabric. Not so. Not when you have this adorable shirt to make for yourself. And can I tell you I made this in under two hours? I did. I was happy. That is why I am going back to make another. However the dolls are calling me over to them. I am going to have to make them happy. I shall play with you soon my dears! This mama is just having too much of an obsession/fun with repurposing vintage sheets lately. And ohhh do I have it bad! XO
