This was a dress I made this past summer from sheets I found in the Target clearance section!  Ever year Target dedicates a section of their housewares department to inexpensive "dorm room" sheets, bedspreads, lamps, et cetera.  Last years theme was a bit grittier with numerous graffitti and cityscape prints.

The bodice of the dress was actually a pillowcase which I acquired for the low, low price of $3.00 (for two mind you)!  And the skirt part was from a full-sized sheet set for $6.00 (I STILL have fabric left over after using this fabric for a number of projects).

I really love this dress, and the others that you've posted.  All of them are cut beautifully, such great shapes, and the colors are fabulous.  You look so awesome in them too!
