Some background info: my friends and I have a tradition of dressing up in vintage looking outfits and playing croquet on one of the quads here at school. We're scheduled to play next sunday but it looks like it might rain.  Embarrassed  We'll keep our fingers crossed. anyway, without further ado, my croquet sundress...



I got the vintage bedsheet at a garage sale last summer for 50 cents. The material is really great, so it must have a high thread count or something. I embraced my shirring obsession and used it on the waist, neckline and sleeves.

I took way too many pictures, so I'll just link to them at the bottom so it doesn't take ages to load.

This dress is fabulous, and I think dressing  up for croquet is hilarious.  I mean, in a good way Wink.

I think this dress is great.  I just saw Enchanted - it's exactly like something the princess would make out of the curtains.   Wink

Oh my gosh, I LOVE it!  I had a shirt sort of like this once.  The style looks so comfy!  And I love the total ensemble.  And playing croquet in vintage wear is something my friends and I totally would have done, had we all stayed at the same college.
