Vintage Sheet Peasant Dress

I am participating in "The Easiest Sew-Along Ever" over at Windsor & Main.  This dress is my project.  It began with a big box of vintage sheets. 

 I narrowed it down to a pink set of sheets.  I bought these at a thrift store in Virginia when I was out there for spring break.  I love them!  The fabric is so soft.  I also had this pillow case with embroidered kitties on it.  The pillowcase had stains on it.  I decided to make a little apron for the dress using the kitties.
The apron is attached to the dress.  I also added some crochet lace to the hem of the dress.  The tie of the dress is made using a white sheet.  This dress is 100% upcycled!!!  I love it!




  1. That's too cute! I have a few vintage sheets here still in the wrappers from our grandmother's homes. I need to break them out and make dresses for my granddaughters.

  2. This is so darling!! I love the "fabric" and the little apron is just too cute. If you get a chance, please share this on my linky party: http://suburbsmama.blogspot.com/2013/05/sunday-link-party-8.html
