Crazy cubed

There I was, moaning on about how my jungle-print leggings wouldn't qualify for the Stashbusting sewalong, when I decided to do something about it.

First - I planned to sew a little tank-top. But then, a bit of genius (or insanity, take your pick) struck - I'd make a tiger print tank-top and shorts as a sleep set. Genius.

I barely had enough fabric to make the shorts - in fact, the front of the shorts has a bit of selvage showing. It isn't really visible when I'm wearing it though.

While I thought this outfit would look seriously insane - strangely enough, it actually looks quite good on. Less crazy than you'd think.

(Incidentally, I had to use a lot of restraint in terms of a blog post title. Every combination of "tiger print" and "clothing to sleep in" was rather risque, though very funny.)

Oh, and the title - chosen for alliterative effect - is also because I now have 3 garments out of this crazy bit of fabric.

If you can't go a bit crazy with sleepwear then when can you?! Also it is so satisfying when you use up every last scrap of fabric!
