Just when I thought I couldn’t get any crazier, I decided to swathe myself in sheets and leave the house like Sherlock.
Sheets are really an underutilized resource. Where else are you going to find almost 3 yards of 81″ wide fabric (full sized flat sheet) fully hemmed for $15-ish (or much less if you go to the Goodwill or a garage sale) with a bunch of extra fabric for stuff like sashes and sleeves and bows if you get a sheet set? This dress is modeled after the horrendously overpriced Le Sac dress from American Apparel, the easiest dress to make ever. I don’t sew well, I sew pretty poorly, in fact, and I don’t even own a sewing machine. If you can follow directions and sew hems and seams with a plain old straight stitch (i.e. sew some long straight lines), you can do this. You could fabric glue this thing together and it would still look great.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a Sherlock Prom to attend. Do you think this will make for a dramatic entrance?
