Old fashioned collar which I modernised also (it had shoulder pads too!). I hemmed the blouse to go over skirts.
Unwearable to useful... Happy to make/wear the skirt also but have to choose the best style first (pleated? pencil?) as you only get one shot at the material unlike with fabric stores where you could make a collection and errors with unlimited supply!
Mens shirt + Mens tie: (BEFORE LONG SLEEVED COLLARED MENS SHIRT) The material is very soft, the pattern not too manly and it was in a £2 charity shop rail so unwanted! What I didn't like: too loose, dated (university), boring. Now a collarless fitted blouse: (PS. I'll get proper photos on next weekend's garment!)
Using my brother's XXL rough-cotton shirt, I made Fallon a dog bed. Perfect material for her, good quality and hard wearing. 1. Remove the pocket using a picker. 2. Sew edges. 3. Stuff, rebutton. I filled it with winter blankets, which is also a lot tidier! She LOVES her new bed! Protective over it.
Productive weekend as I bought a new sewingmachine, Elna 2300, which is inexpensive and sews button holes, I probably won't need 24 different stitches however! I also sorted a load of clothing for charity and friends. Out with the new/unworn, in with the second hand :p I also lined the bubble hem skirt made from a 70s dress
