I made this dress out of a $3.50 sheet I found at Goodwill and some .50 lace I found at a thrift store.  I used llamby's excellent tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77268.0 and changed the straps, etc so I could wear a real bra. I'm pretty proud of it.

Unfortunately, I did not get a great picture of the dress.  I finished it shortly before I had to leave and with everything going on, I couldn't get anyone to take a good picture of it.  I hope you can tell what it looks like.

I'll try to get better pictures after I wash it.  My 18 month old slimed it at dinner!

On a side note, if you are going to buy a body shaper, the ones at Walmart, with the hook and eye fasteners in the crotch are not a good purchase.  It takes a gymnast to get them open to go to the bathroom and closing them again is horrible.  My mother agrees, she has one, also and we both had some interesting times Smiley.

I'm a big fan of re-purposing. Way to go! It looks great, too!

I like the way the baby in the photo is reaching out, trying to slime you! Don't you just love em..

That looks great! I checked out the tute, too, and it looks pretty easy to do. Great job  Smiley

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so.

Hook and eye + crotch = sounds scary...

I may not have gone where I intended, but I have ended up where I needed to be.

How damned cute and girly is that?  I really like the little lacy sleeves.
