So I made myself another of Rae's ruffle tops out of a thrift shop sheet. I <3 using thrift shop sheets for fabric! Other than the pleats (which took as much time as everything else altogether, apparently because I are dumb about pleats Undecided) this went together fast and easy. It helped that I didn't hem anything-the bottom hem is the long side of the sheet (a selvage edge) and the sleeves were cut from the other long side of the sheet, which was hemmed. I wanted to put a narrow strip of trim around the bottom but didn't have enough left-it had been a pair of pants. I still might do pockets though-I haven't decided.

It still needs washed-you can see the fabric marker dots/chalk stripes everywhere, and the multiple pleat attempts. But I was so pleased with it I wanted to get a pic while the light was still decent. I can see myself making a bunch more of these-I have a whole stack of thrift shop sheets in my stash just waiting, and these are comfortable and breezy. Today it was 91 and muggy-comfortable and breezy matters! Cheesy

Here's the shirt. (Why do you--well, me--never notice things like the tucked in sleeve ruffle until *after* I've taken the picture? Huh)


And a closeup of the fabric, which was a pretty brownish grey-definitely prettier than that sounds! It was a pain to try and match though.
