OH! So cute!
I'm in love with the 60's!
Do you think you could maybe draw what the pattern pieces look like, just the general shape of them?

OMG I agree with above (if you could draw something out to give an idea of how the dress is cut so us guerilla sewers can make our own versions).

After I saw that dress, I went on the hunt for the pattern.. Totally impossible..

Love love love it. GREAT job.

That dress is retro-licious!  And I love how you got everything secondhand, awesome!

Awesome job!   Grin

could this dress be more frickin adorable?  answer:  hell no!!  Cheesy

you look fantastic in it, wow, what an awesome job! a lot of times when people make stuff reconstructed from sheets, i feel like the pattern doesn't totally work with the design of the garment itself, but in your case they look **brilliant** together!

what kind of dump do you have where you live that (a.) you're allowed to roam around in it and (b.)somehow, things don't get all mucked up?  i live in brooklyn, so neither is true here by a longshot.  the pattern looks like it was in good shape to have been found in a dump.  if you don't mind, could you please tell the story of how excited you were when you found the pattern?  because such stories of found trash are like porn to me.  Grin

also, i love that you made this with your grandma.  it makes me miss my gramma jean, who was an amazing seamstress (sadly, my sewing machine skills are real crappy...ok, nonexistant).  i wanna see a pic of her too, haha

one more thing - sorry about this being the longest post ever, i just had tea and i am excited for you - i don't entirely get the "whirl-away" concept.  you're not ever really supposed to wear the dress "whirled-away", are you?  i mean, it's not convertible or anything, just a catchy name...?
