SEVENTIES SHEET SKIRT




This skirt was made from a "Vintage" sheet. I have always been drawn to the patterns and colors of 70's bedding. The colors are usually less stark and the fabric is softer. I thrifted this one many years ago, and my Mom made pillow cases out of it first. The process is the same as my Apple skirt - stitch, elastic and done! The bottom is already hemmed. I was going to wear it today with a simple white T, wide brown belt and platform sandals, but I was not feeling well and am still in my p.j's (at 7.30pm!). I wore this on Saturday. I got the elastic too loose, so I wrapped a purple scarf around my waist to hold it up. I fixed it that night. I enhanced the colors so you can see the pretty pattern. There's a little purple butterfly on the red flower!


I like to mix light florals with heavy leather. It was a cool, windy evening so out came the bomber jacket!








This skirt will be a super casual throw-and-go. Hanging out in my yard, over my swimsuit, T-shirty skirt.
Something to run errands in or mow the grass so I can get some sun skirt! When I get sleepy, I can lay in a lounge chair and take a nap, not worrying about wrinkling it, and dreaming simple 70's dreams!

You're so clever! I remember having sheets like this as a kid, but they were more orange and not as pretty. It makes a beautiful skirt.

I hope you're feeling better.
