It’s Yellow Sheet Week.
It should be Orange Flag Week in light of Holland’s THIRD WIN! Yeah, baby! But I’m out of orange fabric, so Yellow Sheet Week it is.
I had an old yellow cotton jersey sheet that presented possibilities. Some may see an old ratty sheet. I see wardrobe staples for my children.
The first Thing I made from the sheet is a Renfrew shirt for Martina.
I used the same sizing as for her black polka dot shirt. The only change I made was to the neckband. It didn’t lie completely flat on the black shirt so I pinched a bit out of the pattern piece before cutting out the yellow fabric. That did the trick.
I used the least worn areas of the sheet, near the edges, away from the middle. The fabric is a bit thin but it isn’t pilled or discoloured. (And, yes, I should have ironed it for the photo.)
Have I mentioned how much I love the Renfrew? It’s not too many pattern pieces (five), I can sew it entirely on the serger and it’s usually done in under two hours.
And best of all, it turns out great every single time.
