I like this a lot.
I have been consistently, if lazily, on the lookout for a slubby, lineny, loose weave, work wear, hempy fabric with a view to making...something up since last year. I became obsessed with cheesecloth.
I bought an xxs 70s man's shirt of the classic blue checked cheesecloth off eBay, which gives me great pleasure. But a fabric that was shirt or trouser weight was elusive at a good price. Eventually I found a retired dressmaker selling off bolts. Upon arrival it was not white, however, but yellowed magnolia with a green and mustard check and looks like would it be quite at home, once made up, with a food stain down it. So the dye project is on. Black. Probably using Burda 6907 with some alterations to make them more like this (it's the hems).
I am still quietly working on the underwear project by the way. A couple of tweaks and it's there. Pardon the pun.
