I bought a sheet at a yard sale for $1, and made it into this dress! So here is my one dollar dress. I used this (http://www.burdastyle.com/howto/show/65 )tutorial with a few modifications, I shortened the sleeve and cut and sewed the shoulder seems to make a shorter dress. Also I sewed elastic at the waist instead of making a belt.

I also sewed a few pleats at the neck so it wouldn't be off the shoulder.

When I make this dress again I will probably make the neck opening a ton smaller and maybe make it into a normal tank dress style instead of with sleeves. This dress was kind of therapy sewing, I'm going through a tough break up.

I like the dress-- it looks like the right combination of comfy and cute. Sorry to hear about your break up Sad Just keep sewing!

awesome! nice find on the sheet, and the dress looks grand, sort of has this vintage feel to it, but not in a tacky 80s way...
