This is the first piece of clothing that I've made/altered.  It's a bit shapeless, so any recommendations on how to improve it would be great.

The sewing was really simple.  I just cut a large men's shirt under the arms and fold the hemmed end over.



On.  It hits just above the knee.



I used a freezer paper stencil to do the print.  The bf found the stencil on deviant art I think.

I love your stencil, brilliant!.

If you wanted to change it, perhaps you could add a ruffle to the bottom, although that would probably mean stitching through the doctor's elbow. If you think it deperately needs more shape you could put some darts in at the top although that would mean unpicking the stitching you've already done.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
