The Bed Sheet Dress

I’m not even joking, this dress is the same exact pattern and color of our bed sheets. I’m guessing it even has the same thread count but I can’t be sure.

scarf before-100I buy some pieces because I really see a lot of potential in them. Other dresses end up coming home with me because I don’t have a enough self control. This dress fell into the latter category for sure. I really didn’t know what I would do with it. I decided on a skirt so I separated the top from the bottom. After trying on the skirt and seeing what it would look like I decided that wasn’t a good idea either. It was just really “blah.” I was really afraid that this dress was going to end up in my scrap pile, never to be heard from again!

I wasn’t ready to give up on the bed-sheet-beauty yet so I took the skirt portion of the dress and separated the front of the skirt from the back. I was left with two large rectangles of fabric, perfect for an infinity scarf! I sewed the two pieces together to make a long skinny rectangle. Then I folded the rectangle to from a tube of fabric and sew that. Lastly, I closed up the two ends and sewed them together! I was really happy with the way it turned out… Much happier than just throwing it in the scrap pile!
