A few weeks ago I posted a dress I had made from a sheet, it was my practice one before using the good fabric.  I liked how it came out, but at the same time, was worried that it still looked like it was made from a sheet.  It's here.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350359.msg4085298#msg4085298

Well, I made the one from the good fabric, changed a few things, and I love love the way it came out

   

And the two of them together.  I shortened the waistband, and widened the straps (marked on pic).  I like more than a shoestring to hold me up  Cheesy
  and also a thumbnail of a close up of the facric if anyone wants to see.
   

Thanks for looking and I'd love to hear your thoughts  Smiley

I do like both also , but it is still screaming SHEET, SHEET, I"M A SHEET at me, but that is something I have the whole winter to get over it.  Off to look for a short sleeve  red cardigan today to wear with it, for the cooler spring days, and maybe a purple/blue one to wear with the other sheet..er dress
