so my friends had a craft party last night, and there were a bunch of different kinds of sheets from an earlier fort party! i took a ton of them and made a dress. the top part is made from a pillowcase, and i took the elastic from a fitted sheet.



here i am modeling the finished product.



this is my "IT HAS POCKETS" demonstration.



here is a lovely picture of my friend martin modeling it.



a back view, also provided by martin.



three AM waffle house action shot.



finally, a closeup shot i took when i later got home to my attic.

Looks like you had a lot of fun making that as well as wearing it.  Love the mixing of the prints and colours.

I love all the different patterns. It's one of my favorite dress silhouettes, and you did a great job making it to fit you! Also, what a great idea using the elastic from a fitted sheet. Awesome.
