My new project is a dress made from recycled men's shirt and men's trousers. I have been carrying this idea in my head for ages. When I was sorting my fabric stash few month ago, I thought these two fabric would be really good together. After looking for a perfect pattern to use, I've decided to use Burdastyle dress pattern from March 2011 for the bodice, just added elbow length sleeves and will work on the skirt along the way. Would like to keep the pockets from the trousers. Will keep you posted. And here is few pictures:

New top finished and what's on my sewing table
My new top is finished now, I already wore it and I do really like it. It's perfect paired with jeans, I'm sure it's going to be one of my favourites. And blue is definitely my favourite colour at the moment. It's very simple, with the buttons on the back, for which I used the front of the shirt. To add a little bit of 'personality' I created lace asymmetric detail on the front. The pictures and not really that great, I took them myself and there hasn't been much sun for a very looong time. Can't wait for spring to arrive....
