Absolutely beautiful and you are so creative..if I made one it would probably be a big mess..lol

Great job hun....... Grin

BTW..how do you "dip dye" something?


I call it dip dye because I just boil a pot of water, pour in the Ritz dye and stir, and then I just kept "dipping" the fabric in to the desired color! LOL I actually wanted to have a tricolor effect where it was evenly graduated into light, darker, dark, but I made a mess! Thank you all again for the positive comments.  And for the UK gal with the heirloom sounding linens, I would make up a dress first in something that won't worry you and then cut into those lovely sounding pieces which would make a dress you'd truly treasure!!

I think it is gorgeous, and the gradiation of the pink looks perfect. But really I just love how, when you saw it didn't fit the table, just decided, 'this is going to be a dress then'. What lateral thinking.

I adore this dress!  You are one smart and resourceful cookie!  Great, great job!  The fit is so perfect too!  I will never look at round table clothes the same way again!

Your dress is so beautiful.  I especially love the pink color that you chose. 

I have an oval tablecloth that I purchased from a thrift store months ago.  The center of it is orange linen with a white linen border.  I was considering making a skirt but may adopt your idea instead.  Because I'm taller, though, the finished length may make it more appropriate as a tunic rather than a dress.

Hi! I'm a Karen too! I think a tunic length would be great for this over jeans, or again as a swimsuit cover up. It was just so easy to make and I think that women my age would look nice in it as well as the younger crowd because it's "retro"!! Note to self,,,is it retro if you wore it before??? LOL (I was a baby hippie!)
