Well don’t be, here are 5 chic designs to use luxe Egyptian cotton bedsheets and to make the trendiest maxi skirts from them. Go ahead, read on and be inspired!
Maxi slits for the beach
Grab hold of a pin striped or a floral Egyptian cotton bedsheet for this one, and ask your tailor to hem the waist into a pretty bow-belt, allowing the rest of the sheet to fall gracefully over your legs. The right leg should be where the slit goes high to the upper-knee, and voila, a sexy beach maxi slit skirt ready in no time! Looking haute and hot already, aren’t you?
A retro touch for the cocktail party
Bringing back the good old maxi dresses worn at cocktail parties in the late 70s, should be your fashion aim this Diwali. Should you want to dress in style with loads of chic attitude and of course, comfort too, a printed cotton bedsheet in vibrant colours or block prints can easily convert into a haute retro maxi number. Your tailor would know best how to A Line the skirt with grace, and add a few touches to make it a hot number too!
A birthday bash wear
Dolling up for your BFF’s birthday and looking not the same as the other attendees should be fun, but an adventure you can embark upon from now! A round neck shirt or a black tee, with a striped maxi skirt (using a pin-striped cotton bedsheet) would look haute for the Summerish evening party. Keep the top tucked inside the waist of the maxi dress, if you have a slim frame, or wear a peplum top over the maxi dress to hide the stomach- vertical lines would make you look tall and slimmer as well!
A gorgeous maxi cocktail ensemble
Grab hold of a royal blue Egyptian cotton bedsheet for this number to flaunt at the event this weekend. Keep the shoulders to a bare minimal, a square neckline and embellish the region with a pretty thin tiny bow to add more effect. At regular intervals on the dress, have a few inner hemline stitches done, which brings in more volume to the plain look.
Tea party fun
Maxi dresses are so versatile that you can wear them for the most serious events to the fun gal-pal tea party times too. And when converting your boring bedsheet into a chic trend is thought about, do it with a touch of all things minimal and elegant. For example, a dark coloured bedsheet can be turned into a pretty waist maxi dress with a top stitched to it; prêt-a-porter the DIY couldn’t have come easier and so cheap!
Inspired already? We knew you would be! Go ahead and make heads turn wherever you go, embellish to the minimum and let the gorgeous luxe cotton sheets turn into sexy cocktail maxi numbers this evening!
