For something a little different, native New Yorker Peter of Male Pattern Boldness re-purposed vintage sheets into shirts, and shirt sleeve cuffs
Lets not forget those lovely floral prints found on upholstery fabric. I've been experimenting with upholstery fabric fashion myself, but this flowery military jacket is outstanding.
As seen on BurdaStyle, made by Ulrika from Stockholm, Sweden, her jacket is made from 100% cotton furnishing fabric from Tygverket.
And lastly, this wonderful interpretation of the Colette Sorbetto top, created by Kestral Finds and makes, made from a vintage table cloth with scenes of Plymouth (England).
Seriously, who needs to buy brand new material these days? Go raid your Grandma's bed linen cupboard, ask your local furnishing shop if they have any off cuts, or search through the tea towel collection of your thrift store for pretty printed fabric to play with!
