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
