Pink Lemonade Wrap Dress

Portland, Maine,...






This was my first “Completely New Creation from Recycled Material”! Can you believe it was just from a twin size bed sheet? I loved the colors, which inspired it’s name. It was a very basic pattern, but I omitted the sleeves to show off my shoulders. I also added a snap at the v-neck to prevent the dreadful gaping!

Material Notes

upcycled cotton sheet




Garment Type

    So cute and awesome that it is a former bed sheet. The colors are so nice on you!

    I love the dress. Guess what i actually guessed it must be from a bedsheet…. intuition i guess…

    I also support the idea of having a snap at the V intersection to maintain modesty. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I want to make a wrap dress for self so badly, and had been postponing thinking only very curvy people would look good in them….now i really want to make one and shed my inhibition.

    lovely wrap dress and I love the print, and yes, I can’t believe it used to be a sheet giggling well done!

    love it – i’m a big fan of using retro bedsheets to make clothes, i’m always finding really cool ones in the op shops here in New Zealand… Did you use a pattern off this site?

      Thanks estelleperdita! I wish I could find more retro bedsheets…no, this pattern is from Butterick. Has anyone ever told you that you look like Kate Winslet? :D
