Stripes Forever !

๐Ÿ’™This is my husband's shirt ๐Ÿ’™

I found it in his wardrobe, but luckily it became mine! ๐Ÿ˜„

I cut of the sleeves and the collar, but kept the collar-stand.
Then I cut it curved at the waist to fit better.

I like to combine different fabric and colors..
I had a white sheet that I bought for a toga-party, 
and now it would be great to combine with the stripes. 
I found a blouse pattern in BurdaStyle issue 05/2019 
and thought the sleeves could be great for the shirt dress.
As you can see it was a lot of darts to sew before I could sew the sleeve band.

I cut the skirt on bias so it fall very nicely.

I figure it was nice to wear with a belt, so I made one of the same white sheet.

So now I'm ready for summer ☼
