Happy Monday Lovelies!

I made this dress on a quick whim last week since I wanted to try and play along with at least one of the Sewcialists Mini Challenges this year. I spun the challenge wheel and got the color Coral, and I so happened to have a coral sheet sitting in my upcycled pile so it worked out perfectly! I made an Instagram post yesterday (you can see the before and after VIDEO there) and realized I should prolly blog about it too, and while I’m at it just do a review of the pattern! So really, killing two birds with one stone in both instances! lol

Upcycling Tip: Using bed sheets as fabric is one of the best ways to get a bang for your buck! You get a huge amount of yardage both in length and width for a fraction of the price you’d pay for a regular yard of fabric!
