Fashion Reuse: from sheet to shirt dress

Added Sep 17, 2007

Chicago, Illinoi...






Shirt dress from an old Ralph Lauren Full Sheet. I love the color, hard to describe and does not come out true to the picture. The pattern is built by wendy 4112. I’d like to say that the alteration is intentional but that would be a lie. The collar in the pattern diagrams go up to the edge of the shirt and I double-checked my pattern but this was what I managed. I like it though, so here an altered version, albeit unintentional. Same goes for the sleeves, but I love happy accidents.

    Thanks! These BBW patterns seem true to size for me except that I really have larger arms so I usually adjust my sleeves to accomodate that but the bodice I kept true to the pattern. The pattern is for a shirt and I simply elongated the hem to turn it into a shirt dress. But overall, an easy pattern to follow.

    That’s cute…did you do anything to alter the fit? The collar is cute like that :)
