Today I have a fun tutorial especially for the first of April. It’s a super-quick dress-refashion using a vintage sheet from the thrift store. I’ve been collecting vintage sheets for a while now and what better way to use one, than for a new dress for spring!
Because we’re using vintage sheets we can make this really quickly by using the finished edges of the sheet as the hems of the dress. You need to find a sheet that is long enough when folded in half horizontally to be the desired length of your dress. If it’s a large sheet, cut the width of the sheet to the size you like, depending on how full you want your dress to be. I measured my wingspan from wrist to wrist to decide how wide I wanted to make my dress.
I choose this sheet in part because it already had a ruffle on one edge which makes a lovely decorative hem. As you know, ruffles are HOT right now. And this dress screams HOT doesn’t it?
I hope you enjoy this new project to add to your to-do list! Happy First of April!
