Hello Craftsters!

A while ago my brother found a cool looking table cloth at a thrift store and gave it to me to do something with. A few days ago I woke up and realized winter break is almost over, and I haven't sewn a thing! So I decided to use that table cloth along with the pattern for cinderellas bodice from halloween and a simple gathered square for the skirt. I improvised the sleeves and am pretty satisfied with them. I'm also happy with the way the pattern turned out, I tried kinda hard to mirror the design, especially on the back and it turned out pretty decent.

That is stunning.  The pattern matching over the zipper is amazing!

You did a wonderful job. This is definitely a dress I would be happy to wear. What a great brother you have that keeps an eye out for thrift finds like this cloth!

What a great transformation!! I really like how you aligned the flowers in the back. It makes such an interesting detail.
