Portland, Oregon...






upcycling! made from a sheet i got for free for a smaller bed i no longer have. cut my own bias strips from the fabric. i used this simple pattern to practice shortening BEFORE cutting and it was all in all a success. the tie band is a tad bit high but i will live.

only purchase made was $1.29 for the elastic and the $3.50 for the pattern. cheap dress!

Material Notes

cotton/poly blend sheet. 1cm wide knit elastic.




Garment Type
Cotton, Blends

    I love your Anda. I can’t wait to make my own. Did you follow the pattern exactly, or did you make any changes? I don’t want mine to turn out like a “shapeless sack,” lol. I’d love any advice you’ve got on making this pattern look so good!

    I agree with the above comment – it looks way better than I thought it would!

    You’ve made this pattern actually look good. When I saw the original the two words I thought were “shapeless” and “sack”. Your version looks really cute.
