Oooh, bliss!  I found ALF sheets for $0.50 yesterday.  AND, I found a vintage 1960's shirtwaist style dress pattern for a dime!  After I make a mockup and get the sizing adjusted for lil' ol' me, just GUESS what I'm gonna use for the dress itself?!?

Oooh Oooh! Sounds so great.  I can't wait to see it! Grin Where did you find the pattern? Every vintage pattern I find is $$$.

Goodwill.  It was "Dollar Days" this weekend, where all clothing was $1 (Ooh, I got some GREAT stuff for my vintage shop!!!!) and they were a bit tired I think.  I think the manager said all the patterns are usually $0.29, but since these were "old and don't have the envelopes" she gave them to me for $0.10.  I got two of them.  They're old mail-away patterns by a company called Marian Martin.  They rock.

did you add some kind of lining into the bottom of your dress? cause im thinking that if its made from a sheet, it would be majorly see-through, right?

VooDoo: nope, no lining. strategic placement of images and lots of fabric in the skirt. plus, i'm not too concerned about things being see-through. just an excuse to wear funky underwear!  Grin
of course, you can always line things made from sheets, but it would obviously make it more bulky. i was going for the light, airy sun-dress look.

I love the way you designed the dress (especially with no pattern)!  I actually just got the exact same sheet from someone on Ebay, intending to make something similar, probably going more for the floor length skirt.  The ebay find was of course more costly than a thrift store find, but my local thift store is severly lacking in the cool sheet department.  I, however, am probably not as daring/gifted and will probably get a pattern to make sure I don't waste a perfectly good Smurf parade.

Here's my version:




I picked up a Strawberry Shortcake sheet at a thrift store last weekend, and sort of made a copy of another dress I had.  Smiley

I loved this idea!
