I've been here for MONTHS and I've never posted anything, so, um, here goes!
I hand dyed an old twin sized set of sheets, and while the dress I made out of the bottom sheet was a bit of a disaster, I'm extremely pleased with the one I've made out of the top sheet. It has a crossover top (I borrowed the shape of the bust from that popular New Look pattern.. um, 6001? I think.), elastic in the back for a varied fit, and two huge sashes that allow the dress to be worn several way.
The back, when tied empire style. See the elastic? Oh, please ignore my serger thread ends, there... haha.
And my favorite way to tie it (that I've found thus far):
I love how it turned out. I'm considering selling some... what do you think? And what's the deal, if I loosely based part of a garment on part of a commercial pattern, am I still subject to copyright? I changed a TON about it, and it's my own design, but I wanted to use the shape of the bust as a guideline. Anybody know anything that would help me?
Thanks for looking!
