This dress was created specifically for this contest. I found out about it and immediately remembered that I had a black twin size flat sheet under my bed, left over from my gothy-teenage days. I only ever used the fitted sheet, so the flat was in good condition, aside from being really wrinkly. 24 hours, a zipper from a friend's stash, and about a million try-ons later, I present my dress.





This dress was inspired by Dior's New Look, and so of course I had to take a shot that showed off the full skirt to its, um, fullest. This is the dress with a tutu-esque skirt underneath it for added volume.



Thanks for looking!

Beautiful! I too can't believe its a sheet! Did you use a pattern at all, or just make it up as you went? whatever you did- it worked!

That is the perfect 'little black dress' and it looks awesome with the underskirt as well. Great job with the pictures too.

Wow, thanks everyone! I had a lot of fun with it. And yes, that is an orange tutu. My mom scours random fabric sales for me and sometimes comes home with things like 15 yards of bright orange tulle. Smiley

That's a really awesome use of a sheet!  I'd never guess what it was in its original incarnation.  Fabulous!
