Description

The trauma my best friend is experiencing due to the recent tragic death of the Chicken Dress (see my studio) at the ‘hands’ of a hot iron will hopefully be assuaged with this Bedsheet Anda (I nearly wrote ‘replacement’, but nothing will be able to replace the Chicken Dress).

      Thanks so much. It was a duvet cover that my best mate no longer wanted for it’s original purpose. It was a repro-print by a company called KIP. I also have this same design in duvet cover form from the ’70’s.

    Love it! The placement is great, and while it may not live up to the memory of the chicken dress, I’m sure this rendition will become a wardrobe fav! I swear my mom has that same sheet in the back of her linen cabinet.

    OH NO!! I LOVED THE CHICKEN DRESS!!! i would die for a few yards of that chicken fabric. sadly, as much as i can appreciate the lovely retro print of the bedsheet dress, i’m just not sure if it can fill the chicken dress’ void. i do hope that vic is handling her loss ok. you’re such a good friend to sew her a replacement.

      Many thanks for your kind words at this sad time. They are thoroughly appreciated, and I know that we will get through it and be able to look back at the Chicken Dress with nothing but fond memories without being blinded by loss! x

    That is too intriguing of a story to not check out… :)

    Sorry about the loss of “the chicken dress” to a hot iron. We have all ruined, or will ruin, some lovely garment to an iron. I am glad to see you have a consolation for your friend’s loss, if not a replacement. I really love the print, and enjoyed reading about “The tale of the chicken dress” on your blog. Happy Sewing!

      Thanks for your comment and stopping by my blog! Tragedies are part of sewing and life I guess! Happy sewing indeed

    That fabric reminds me of when I was a little girl in the 1970’s. This is the coolest dress. I think its very 70’s retro. Great job on this Anda.

    Omg I love this! I want those bedsheets so bad! I have a bag with similar design and I like it so much! I would make curtains from this fabric, so beautiful.

      Many thanks Janul! These bedsheets were manufactured by a company called Kip, but the design is actually a reproduction of a 70’s design as I own a vintage duvet cover with exactly the same print but in green colours!
