"Hey, I recognize that sheet!" (Summer Dress!)

...Because some things are, undoubtedly, quite recognizable for sheets. Even if you've turned them into dresses.

This was me, sitting down one evening (see: 9:45 PM) and thinking, "I don't have enough dresses. If I'm going to go through with this plan of wearing dresses and heels all summer, I will have to make more."

So I sewed until after midnight, and finished the zipper right after breakfast the next morning. Yes, I am freakishly obsessive about my sewing. No, there is nothing unusual about this.

So there you have it: another dress to go with my yellow shoes! It was only after I cut everything out that I realized the skirt portion was more faded than the top. The belt kind of breaks it up, but maybe I'll screen print on it to draw the eye away. I'm awfully excited to have new dresses to wear this summer!

Also, a small note on the watermarks: There was a bit of drama over on Threadbanger when a guy stole photos of someone else's work and claimed they were his own--and had people believing him for a few months until it was discovered. While I don't mean to flatter myself into thinking someone would want to do this to me, I would really rather not take the risk. I'm trying to watermark my photos from now on, although sometimes I do forget. So... that's why. ^^


  1. I love how you did the top part. It's very cute!

  2. Looks great! I tried making a sheet dress once and had terrible luck with it...maybe I'll give it another go.

    I hadn't heard anything about the threadbanger picture thing, should I watermark the photos I use on there?

  3. Ohh! It has stripes! I am a huge fan of stripes! :) The colors are perfect for summer-ish flirty fun! I love the halter top!
    I have Thursdays off, and will try to call you then, k? I need you to inspire me to get sewing! :P

  4. This is shamefully late, but to reply:

    Hannah Thank you very much! :)

    Whitney Thank you! Yes, you should! I like that it's easy to treat as a length of fabric.

    If you want to read about the incident, you can here:

    It might be a good idea to watermark your photos--better safe than sorry, right?

    Dana Thank you, doll!! I like stripes too! But did you hear that horizontal stripes actually make you look thinner?? It's true! I'll link you to the articles sometime. :) & we need to talk again soon.

  5. Wow!! It's beautiful summer dress and yellow shoes... You are looking superb in this dress...
