London, United K...






I made this over 4 days, sneaking an hour or so out of each day! I found this old sheet years ago in an Oxfam shop. The bodice is from Burda’s tank dress, issue 2/2011. More details on “my blog”: http://ooobop.com/2011/07/25/ooobop-vintage-sheet-dress/

Material Notes

a vintage sheet, poly cotton lining and an invisible zip

    Really lovely dress-the vintage sheet fabric is perfect. I’m inspired to check out charity shops in my lunch break today now!

      Thank you. Oh do check them out… really. I regularly pop in to charity shops at lunch times. I’m due to post a blog about my recent finds. It should be encouraged!

      Thank you becca. Its a great pattern to work with. The all in one facing/lining takes a bit of practice but I think I will be trying some more too!
