8 dresses

with my new job, i am working 3 12-hour shifts,
which leaves me 4 days off a week.

what's a girl to do with all that time?

i've been expanding my wardrobe,

1 dress at a time.

most of my fabric starts out as vintage sheets,
i just love the colors and patterns.
(not to mention ALL this fabric only cost $12!

this was for my niece cali's 2nd birthday

ruffle trim neckline and elastic sleeves


my second one for me

pleats down the front

wrap dress
(my easter dress :))

my favorite part,
the ruffle neckline

i am in the middle of an 8 day break from work
and when my dad asked what i was going to do i told him,

"make 8 dresses :)"

  1. wow! I'm impressed. When I have attempted to make clothes from sheets it never works because they are stiff. What patterns or tutorials are you using, if any?

  2. thanks! and yeah, some of them are, so i have to revise my plans when they don't lay right. but i don't use patterns or tuts, just make them up as i go along :)
