I'm calling this my wearable muslin. I drafted the pattern myself and there are still a few tweaks to be done but it's wearable. It started life as a very cheap cotton single bed quilt cover that felt like cardboard. I washed it twice (once with vinegar) to try to soften it up, so it's not too bad now. It's definately not quality fabric but it's very light and easy to wear.

I love it! It has a cute vintage shape to it. I would totally wear it with a thick white belt around the waist.

looks great - I especially like the contrast around the neckline and sleeves.
