Would I be dating myself if I admitted that the second dress is made from the same design of sheets I used to own in the 70's? My parents let me paint that same design on my closet doors, so I had the cool room.

I think I like the dress version better. Cheesy

I was going to say that I grew up with my parents having those sheets the first one is made of!  I actually have pictures of those sheets and blanket! 

I LOVE THAT DRESS!  Best use of those sheets ever, imo!  Great work!

I LOVE when people had the sheets I use when they were kids.  I find sheets from my childhood at thrift stores all the time!

Yes I did.  But The hood is from a 60s pattern.  If you just find a hooded dress pattern, take the hood piece and attach it to the shoulders of another dress you make!

The first one is awesome! And I agree with the first comment: The second one is so candy corn.

I adore them both. The second is my favorite though. Smiley It is totally the vibe of my childhood. Early 80's.. san diego beaches. The sunset with salty air and my parents glasses clinking with ice cubes... Smiley

Really love how both of these turned out! Great colors on both. The second dress reminded me of candy corn too, at first, but it actually looks like that cool 70's/80's sunset patten that was on everything. I always loved that look.
You are right that hoods are great to have on a dress and pockets are great! But usually hard to find Sad
These dresses are actually very pretty and flattering too. Good show!
