I got a plaid skirt years ago in a charity shop. The colours and fabric were / are gorgeous but everything I ever thought to make from it fell by the way side and I was at a loss, until I figured on an overblouse. They are brilliant – this is the first one I have ever made and I am a convert, I always like a slight tailored look, but it also has to be as comfortable as a sweater and this is. I should have been a bit more generous when I graded up, but other than that this pattern will be used again! I tried the collar and didnt like it as its a lie flat collar, the next one I make I am thinking of a roll top collar. The long sleeve T was also an upcycle/refashion.
