I wasn't sure whether this was a general or a reconstructed project, seeing as it is actually made from a set of linnens. But then, it's basically just a very large piece of fabric, so it might as well have been general. It's IKEA and the pattern was freehanded last night when I had the sudden urge to sew. It consists basically of squares with a big hole for the neck, so it was really simple.
I'm so happy the vertical stripe aligned so perfectly down the front. It has a similar stripe on the back that aligns just as well, though I suspect that it might be luck more than actual skill making that happen.

The relaxed way of wearing it


And the belted way


Thanks for looking!

Great job on lining up the stripes. Isn't it great when things work out so nicely.

It' s very nice with the belt. It's very nice ubelted as well, different style and the effect of the stripes is more intense. Lovely work! And lovely shoes!!!
