Would this be thrifty or just trashy?

This may make some of you cringe at just this thought, but oh well.  I'll keep this very short.

I'm poor.  Yes, a lot of us are poor, but I'm pretty much at "Can't pay bills" poor.  It has been my dream for years to own a proper lolita dress (I am mostly a fan of classic!), but of course, one cannot afford 300 dollars in clothes for a single outfit.  Anyways, I live in a very old house that my Great-Grandmother lived in since she was able to own her own with her husband.  (Built in `32).

 Anyways, she has collected over the years a plethera of moderate-high quality bedsheets (GASP!), and since she no longer lives here and...I want a dress, and I'm not using these sheets, do you think it would be acceptible to turn them into dresses, skirts, etc?  Or is that a crime against fashion?
