Newport , Kentuc...






I made this dress out of a vintage bed sheet purchased from a thrift store. I lined the cotton sheet fabric with a cotton muslin, and added a 22 inch zipper for closure. The 1990’s pattern I used previousl;y belonged to my mother, so this dress cost about $4 to make :). That’s what I like to hear!! This dress is so fun fun to wear, and definitely keeps the compliments coming!

Material Notes

Vintage Cotton Sheet, Muslin lining.

      You have to admit though, that is one AVANT-GARDE key signature! lol.

      I wouldn’t be able to go past this print either.

      It’s the first time I’ve ever found music note bedding while I was thrifting, but I’m sure they have tons on ebay! You should get some and surprise them with a dress or skirt! Even if you just find pillowcases, you could make a simple gathered or fitted skirt out of them :).

      Thanks! It really turned out better with the muslin underneath. It gave it such a different drape (visually).
