i don’t sew by patterns mostly because i don’t know how, and because i’m not a precise person. it’s more likely i’ll be successful if i make things up as i go. so i like to buy clothes from goodwill and change them into other things. today i turned a conservative long-sleeved button down with a cool frill wrap collar into this:
