From Sheet to Shirt

Craft & Design

Everything about this photo from Flickr user mame* is inspiring me right now. She used an ultra-soft vintage sheet to make this simple tunic-style blouse, which looks like the perfect layering piece for Fall. She used a pattern from this Japanese craft book to make it, but if you can’t find that book I’d bet this Built by Wendy pattern would make a good substitute/alternative too.
