Or rather, just the one.
Seriously though, I had the most brilliant idea that I got from the lovely Meghan of Meg's Ragged Edge. She makes many of her own clothes, including some mega cute dresses, out of thrifted fabrics. Some of them have been thrifted sheets. A crafter's secret for fabric on the cheap.
When the DH and I got married, we were gifted three sheets sets. One of which was a black jersey sheets set that the DH hated to sleep on. I liked 'em because they feel like just like a soft tee shirt, y'know the one you always grab on weekends and comfy days. So it's sat around being unused.
I stumbled across the fitted sheet over the weekend. Flopping it around in attempt to fold it, I eventually tossed it across my shoulders while cleaning up. I passed by the mirror and realized, huh - it kind of looked like a bubble hem, and I can't remember who was posting about bubble hems, but I remembered reading the post (I never remember to bookmark things, please comment if it was you!).

Add a belt or my harness and it's a funky dress. I haven't decided if I want to stitch together the hemline any to make it wearable on its own, because I like the layering possibilities so far. But I am thinking of some additional seams to have a little more structure to the bodice. I'm out of black thread though, so it may wind up with orange seams - hmm!
Cheater, Cheater, Pumpkin Eater! I took a sheet and made it neater! What do you think of my sheet dress - repurposed chic or keep it in the bedroom?
