I made this dress out of a Dick Tracy Sheet I found at a thrift store.  I used McCall's 3584.  The Dick Tracy dress took a night to do, the second one took maybe an hour.  I didn't make the lining for it though.  I did feel that the pattern sizing was a little weird.  The top was really really low and way too big, so I had to change that.  There's basically only 5 pieces for the whole dress.  The second dress was made from a tablecloth I found at my mom's. 





This was made out of one of my dad's old shirts.  I made it smaller, and then drew on the picture.  The stencil is floating around here somewhere.  I used hearts instead of the butterflies since I can't draw very well.

oh wow.  Dick Tracy sheets.  I'm so jealous.  You used them well, the dress pattern fits the movie style.
