I'm thinking...

Last week I scored some vintage sheets and pillowcases (translation: fabric on the cheap) at my local Goodwill. I used my favorite one -a pretty, ruffly sham- to make myself a simple blouse:

 and the rest I've just kind of had draped around my little studio corner, with the last (*gasp*) of my gray polka dots (one of may all-time favorite vintage fabric finds), waiting for the right idea.

I'm thinking...

a cowboy shirt for Riles, using this vintage pattern courtesy of Grandma.
Oooh! or the blue/mustard print for the cowboy shirt.
Save the floral for Laurelei.

This? The blue-pocket style one? Hmmm...maybe...
or something a little more like this:

Or both. 
Yup. Perfect.
Now all I have to find is the time.


p.s. Would anyone be interested in a little tutorial on the sham shirt? Let me know in the comments and if there's enough interest I'll cook one up.
