This bed sheet challenge was a stellar idea!  I'm entering the shirt/skirt set my mom and I made. But, really it's the underskirt I made during this challenge.  I used a pinkish colored King-size sheet set that was sun damaged.



The top is loosely based on Simplicity's 9966 Costume Pattern.  I changed the shape of the sleeves and added fullness and length to the whole thing.  The sleeves have drawstrings at the neck, upper arms and wrists.

The underskirt was made from the fitted sheet.  Pretty much just cut a hole in the center of the sheet and trimmed off the elastic.  The king-sized sheet was so large, the length is perfect for a full length skirt.  Smiley   So, it's a full circle skirt made all in one piece, except the drawstring casing waistband.    

I still plan to make bloomers out of the extra long pillow cases.



We still have a small amount of the flat sheet left over.  I'm thinking a pouch or coif-type thing for her head.  I'm set on using up every scrap.  Smiley

There are more details and pics on my blog.

Fantastic! As a former costume shop helper/model, I know the incredible amount of construction and fabric that goes into these outfits! The underskirt you made really enriches the heavy, dark over skirt.

I bow to your dressmaking skills.

Thank you to everyone for the kind comments.  Mom is already digging through her cabinets for more mismatched sheets to use for more garb.  Smiley
