Vintage Sheet Frock W/ Modern Pockets {sewing for me}

Finding sweet vintage sheets is such a thrill for me! And when I stumbled upon this floral beauty, I  knew it was destined to be a frock. The yardage required to make a dress/ frock can be pricey, so using an inexpensive (but darling) vintage sheet is a great fit especially when testing a new-to-you-pattern.

I combined the vintage floral sheet with a more modern print for the pockets.

There was a small risk involved in making this pattern into a dress-- vintage sizing can be different than the modern sizings, and this one was labeled for teen/ junior. BUT, because the sheet only cost me $2, I was willing to take the chance that it would fit. It is a snugger fit than I'd usually like, but I love it none-the-less.
