This was my practice one, to get the sizing right, good thing too, because the top of the back needed 4" taken out of it.  I like it, but does it look too much like it was made from a sheet to wear?  By the time summer get here (Southern Hemisphere) there will probably be heaps of similar prints at the fabric store, and I won't have paid $15/m for them.  Hubby says it doesn't look like a sheet, and it didn't in the mirror, but now looking at the photo's I think it does, just a bit, or is that only because I know that it was?  I also used a self cover button, I am not totally happy with the zip, there were no invisible ones, and I have never been the successful with the regular kind.
Thanks for looking.  Smiley

It doesn't look like a sheet at all, it looks great!  I don't know where you are, but big florals are all the rage for summer here in the UK, so it's right in style as well!  I have always liked those types of colours, I think it's a fantastic summer dress.  I'd probably wear white shoes with it though.  Just personal preference.  White sandals would look great with it!  I'm hitting "this rocks"  Smiley

Actually, I tried to hit this rocks, and it says I'm not logged in.  Strange that I can post though, hahah.  Anyway, it does rock, even if I can't hit the button!

I think it looks very summery Smiley I'm sure no one will know that it was once a sheet.
Love the colours... I think I have a matching pillowcase!!

It is gorgeous!  It doesn't look like a sheet to me, and if I saw a sheet that looked like that I would buy it right away to make clothes with!  Cheesy
