Ikea Bedsheet dress

San Jose, Califo...






I love making dresses out of bedsheets for a few reasons:

They are so damn comfy
They sometimes have more interesting patterns than the cotton you can buy in store
They are free
(Most important for me) No pre-shrinking needed!

Granted, this is only the second dress involving bedsheets, but we dont have much unused bedsheets around. This fabric is terribly dark as a bedcover for our bed, so we didnt use it much. I cut it up and re-made Vogue 8380 using that fabric. I did make the bust and waist bands wider and put a rubber band through the waist band and did not use a zipper. Whew! so much more comfortable than my last version.
