I got these sets of sheets from my grandma. One was a desert scene, which I made into a dress years ago, and this mountain one.

Since summer is here I was excited to sew up a light cotton summery day dress.

I just feel like sometimes vintage 70s sheets make the best summer dresses.





And if I love summer so much, why not look like summer?

That's really beautiful. Did you use a pattern, is it a zippered-back fastening?

thanks! I just put an elastic in it, I wanted something I could play around in all summer. I made the pattern myself with my sloper pattern.
