Sweet Dreams Are Made of This

This woman was sitting just ahead of me during a music performance at Home County, and after staring at her dress for an hour I finally asked her for a photo, and, the obvious question, "Where did you get your Care Bears dress?"  She made it herself from her old bedsheets, and then her mother remade it for her after proclaiming that her daughter had done a terrible sewing job.  I don't know what it looked like before her mother got ahold of it, but I love the neckline, and that it's a maxi dress.  It reminded me of Vix, of the blog Vintage Vixen, who is always whipping up skirts and tops from bedsheets and tea towels. 
Yep, those are definitely Care Bears

  2. This is hilarious, but I agree with you the cut is lovely!

  3. Fantastic! Charity shops are always full of old skool kid's bedding and there's enough in a duvet to knock up a decent-sized frock (plus they're so cheap it isn't the end of the world if it's a disaster and the finished dress ends up as dusters!). xxx

  5. That is such a neat idea! It would be especially cute for kids when they outgrow their crib sheets. I never knew what to do with them. I could have at least made pajamas!
