I made this dress years ago, but never got around to sharing it! I haven't tried any patterns since, though I'd like to try another one. This dress used Simplicity 2886, and some bedsheets I found at Goodwill. I actually really like how they feel, and they make me want to swish around!



The pattern was relatively well explained - there were some fiddly bits that took a while, but I got it right in the end. Very proud of that zipper!



Three cheers for dresses with pockets!



Thanks for looking.  Cool

Super cute AD Grin.  My first try at a pattern dress ended up in the "Make Something With This" pile, so I'm impressed Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
