HSF '14 #8: UFO

As I've previously stated, I don't really have an unfinished projects pile. I tend not to make anything without an event/challenge to wear it for. But I do have an abundant fabric pile, and so I decided I needed a new chemise.

I've had this pink batiste for a very long time, but there was never enough to really do anything with until now. It's so light and soft and breathable, I've even started wearing it as a nightgown!
