I made this shirt the morning before my high school reunion...from a square piece of fabric.

It looks great with my awesome fringed vest and jeans... Grin

~I used the width of the fabric to determine the size of my square...
~Fold it on the diagonal, then sew and cut out where the red lines are for sleeves.
~Cut a narrow triangle for the neck hole, be careful not to make it too wide because it pulls open farther than you think from the weight of the sleeves... Wink
~Make a facing for the neck hole using the piece you cut out for a pattern and sew it in...then hem the bottom and sleeves.

I cut a bit off the ends of the sleeves so they weren't so pointy and long.

Any chance of a tutorial for this? I would love to add something like this to my fall wardrobe. It has really nice lines and the shape is something i usually like to wear. thanks

That's lovely, so simple, yet so elegant too. Very clean lines, and so professional looking Smiley

I really like this shirt.  It looks like it would be very flowy when worn.  It is almost like a blank canvas - you could do so much with it, or others that you made like it.  You could dye it, or embroider it, or anything really.  It's neato keen!

So many things fail to interest us, simply because they don't find in us enough surfaces on which to live, and what we have to do then is to increase the number of planes in our mind, so that a much larger number of themes can find a place in it at the same time.

I love it! It looks like a style you could do a lot with. And, though I think I may have an idea of how it could be done, I would love to know how you made the sleeves in there.

Thanks for the comments!  Cheesy I'll put up a little tut after I draw a picture in good ol' MS Paint...haha
