Little Drawer: My Recent Batik Projects

Hello lolis!

Last time I was comissioned to make a lolita dress using Indonesian traditional fabric. Since then (And this is quite recently too!) I was comissioned to another two similar projects. While I do cater to conventional lolita dresses, these projects excite me since it has a somewhat fresh 'oriental' look. That's why I would like to share them here!

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?
