The life and times of a vintage floral sheet ...
A vintage floral bed sheet.
A painters drop sheet.
A fabulous frock!
A frock for all occasions?
For breakfast, lunch or dinner?
A house frock, a picnic frock, a pick up the kids frock, a make the hubby gasp frock,
a seduce a rock god frock, who knows?
A sensible, down to earth, recycled, handmade with love frock!
(Oh and that's me in my first ever "Frock on Friday" pose -
please bear with me while I get more courageous!!!)
What do ya think?
I had so much fun creating this little number! I bought this sheet while on our get-away to the coast a few weeks back purely for its colours.
(I love a good 70s era purple)
The sheet was in very poor condition. It has turquoise and apricot paint splatters everywhere, wax blobs and mould stains here and there! I had to strategically place the pattern pieces but still couldn't quite manage a "clean" pattern piece! Well, whatever! Thanks to the gorgeous pattern on the fabric the stains are easily disguised.
I wanted to create some groovy pockets on the side and the purple bias
was just the look I was after !
A V neckline, and the little tie was a cute after thought. I may need to create larger cap sleeves
to hide my *ahem* bat wings though *argh*
All in all I am pretty darn happy with the outcome!
This one is for keeps but I will be making a few more in the not too distant future!
Stay tuned loved ones .....
