I unfortunately didn't have any old sheets laying around to cut up, so I ventured out and found this:



Twin sheet 3 bucks at Wal-Mart!

Next, I enlisted in a little help from Cynthia Rowley, aka Simplicity pattern #2587
Here it is all laid out on the sheet:





I wanted to use up the the whole sheet, so with the extra fabric on the end,I made a flower to match the dress.
Here are some in progress shots of the flower headband:





Just one more picture of the in progress work!



And here is the final product!





Headband:



The flower can also be attached to the dress:



Well, thats it! A three dollar sheet and a small piece of fabric added (for the dress band) and I have a new dress Smiley
