I recently picked up a large striped full bed sheet in brown stripes with dainty orange flowers. Not my usual choice in fabric, but darling none the less. And for only $1.50, I knew it would work for a future project. After scanning my recent haul of .99 patterns, I pulled a shirt/ frock pattern that I thought would be cute with the stripes and browns of the sheet. Here is the final product.
It was kind of windy and I generally dislike taking pictures alone, so this is the best of the haul, folks:) I used the sheet for the main fabric (still TONS of the fabric left for more projects) and a dainty brown floral for the accent fabric. The collar gave me a little trouble, but once worked out, I love the contrast in fabrics from top to bottom.
I wore this comfy frock all day, and love the way it fits on top- not too snug around the arms or chest. The length is also great for summers on the beach! Yay!
I love sewing for me; using my scraps and bits to add to my closet on a budget. What are you stitching up??
