Skulls and paisley

This item is a dressing gown for my granddaughter.  It is an unusual fabric but one that my daughter chose.  It is lovely and bright and I don’t think my granddaughter will have any idea of what the pattern is.

The second item is a recycled shirt.

paisley shirtThe original shirt belonged to my granddaughter’s dad and my daughter wanted me to make a shirt from the fabric.  I even managed to include the maker’s label from the original shirt.

shirt patternI used this pattern and will certainly use the pattern again as I thoroughly enjoyed making the shirt.  The pattern allowed 1/4 inch seams and this was so much easier than the usual 5/8th as there was less trimming to do.
