Sarong transformation

My Friend Anne Williams showed me how she makes batick sarongs into relaxed cotton shirts last Friday at a WAFTA meeting.

So I made one from a sarong I bought many years ago.  I do have some newer and more beautiful ones but wanted to experiment first with a dispensable one.

I couldn’t be bothered making button holes so added loops from hat elastic.  I also had to piece the sleeves to get decent placement of the motifs.
