11  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 52 ENTRIES / 3 Dollar Sheet To New Dress + Flower Headband on: July 07, 2010 07:28:11 PM
I unfortunately didn't have any old sheets laying around to cut up, so I ventured out and found this:

Twin sheet 3 bucks at Wal-Mart!

Next, I enlisted in a little help from Cynthia Rowley, aka Simplicity pattern #2587
Here it is all laid out on the sheet:

I wanted to use up the the whole sheet, so with the extra fabric on the end,I made a flower to match the dress.
Here are some in progress shots of the flower headband:

Just one more picture of the in progress work!

And here is the final product!


The flower can also be attached to the dress:

Well, thats it! A three dollar sheet and a small piece of fabric added (for the dress band) and I have a new dress Smiley

Love it! I have been meaning to buy this pattern! I like how the piping is emphasized by not using a patterned fabric.
