My fave fabric finds come from thrift stores. Who can beat 99 cents for (sometimes) several yards of fabric? But I don't stop there! No I don't.  My fave finds are vintage sheets in fabulously interesting patterns.

What makes these finds even better? When you also find a fistful of fabulous dress patterns to go with it.

So yes- One 99 cent, fitted, twin sheet and one style from a 69 cent multi-pattern by Sew Easy.

I had to include darts and if I make this style again I'll have to make additional adjustments to the bodice.

Enjoy!

I sometimes dream of glorious fabrics only to wake, run to to my stash, and realize it's time for a trip to the fabric store...

You can't beat the price, can you?  I love the pattern, and truly wish the thrift stores near me had such finds!
