These are the curtains I started with......I took out quite a few seams, since they were pleated. But I immediately fell in love with the print and the price ($1.45, for 4 panels!!!) I love Value Village!



 I found a dress that I based my dress on, also at Value Village ($2.45). I changed it some (no gathering at the waist, not as puffy sleeves). I really love wrap dresses and have never made one so the other dress was a great reference (it was also handmade!)

Here are a few views of the dress on me......

 

The first pic shows one of the ties goes through a slit in the side seam, where it meets the other tie in the back.

It did take a while to make......but I made a new pattern from it...so maybe if I find some more great curtains I could make another!

This was such a great challenge! I love thrifting anyway....but i really felt like I was on a mission! I can't wait to see what everyone else made!

I think this is the first project I have posted! Yay! I can do the picture thing now!
