That turned out so very pretty. You are quite clever! I must try this. I wonder if a round cloth would work since I'm shorter than most.

And, BTW, 48 looks pretty good on you  Smiley

This is wonderful, but i'm wondering if the sleeves have an armhole seam? did you trace another garment, or use a pattern of any kind? Your tute sounds like you just winged it! I saw some tablecloths the other day, I thought of buying to make a dress out of, but they weren't lace, they were just regular linen damask. But I passed it up... now that I saw this, I wish I'd bought one! I think I would  have to cut a little more structure in for my body type, but I like the simplicity of your dress. Great Job!

Mind blown! I seriously cannot believe how easy that is to make. I'm gonna be hitting up the Salvation Army for some table cloths. Your dress is absolutely fantastic.

Wow, you say you might wear this over a bathing suit, but it's pretty enough and dressy enough that you could wear it to a wedding.

Very cool re-use. I love the hippie-chic, early '70s aesthetic of it.
