I made this dress as part of  refashion/60s challenge for the facebook sewing group Stitch Once, Rip Twice. It was made from an old sheet we no longer needed. I wore it to a Hollywood themed birthday party - I was going for an Audrey Hepburn look.

(wish I knew why the photo looks so dodgy!)

Great job on your super cute 60's style dress.  Sheets and sometimes curtains are my new favorite thing to thrift for sewing projects.  Again great job you really captured the look.

Lovely dress!  I love curtains & bedsheets for sewing as well, you get a lot of fabric for your money if you thrift them!

It is a lovely dress, and I think you hit the 60' style.
