Vintage Sheet Sewing

Hi there everyone!

It's been quite some time since I posted anything. I have been a tad busy. I also have tried to remain sewing. I completed a self-drafted sleeveless button-down shirt earlier this week. I am rather proud of it actually.

This is the first button-down that I have ever sewn for myself. I have been really craving floral button-downs lately, and they never have exactly what I am looking for or my size at the store when I go shopping.
So last Sunday I sat down drafted up a pattern, picked up a vintage sheet, and set to work. I was so thoroughly impressed with the progress I was making that I wanted to skip work just to get it finished. But at last I got it done.

As soon as I can find more awesome floral sheets, I will be whipping out more of these guys.

The shirt is made from a vintage sheet, vintage buttons and vintage bias trim to line the armholes.

I purchased these Coldwater Creek green jeans from the thrift store and made them into skinnies. They are super comfy and only cost me like six bucks. Can't beat that price!! Plus they will look great with so many other things in my wardrobe.


  1. i'm lovin' that cute top and the green jeans are perfect.

  2. Love your pretty top!! :) Have a happy week! :) Smiles, Holly

  3. I really like this shirt! It's so unique. I'm impressed that you drafted it yourself!

  4. OMGoodness I absolutely LOVE the vintage sheet shirt idea. Of course you saying you Whipped it up...well now...wish that I could do the same. That is REALLY adorable!
