One of my personal favourite projects from last year was this Betty Draper-inspired dress. You can read the original post here.
This was made from a sheet that I bought for £4.99 in Oxfam, and I’m really glad I bought it. I still have the pillowcases left to make something else for next summer!
The final dress was very like the Betty Draper original, except the skirt wasn’t as full, giving it more of a 60s vibe than 50s.
Of course, I took this to Kenya. I actually wore this without the belt as it was so hot, but the breathable fabric really helped. The colours in particular were perfect for an African evening. I’m still completely in love with this dress and will continue to wear it as often as the weather allows.
