This is my first thread so please I want opinions, honest opinions!  It won't hurt my feelings, criticism helps us grow!

These dresses were made from sheets that I purchased at a local thrift store for about a dollar to 3 dollars a piece I bought several sheets so I can make lots of little girly clothes so take a look






And I still have lots and lots of fabric left from these sheets!!!!!
So I better get started for spring!

Those are adorable!  You can get a heck of a lot of fabric in a sheet, huh?  I love the vintage look of those dresses.

They are all really pretty, you did a great job!  I like the gathering on the first one, are they channels for elastic?

And your daughter (I'm assuming!) is gorgeous!

Thank you! Yes I used channels for the elastic, but next time I think I'll just try to stitch the elastic under the garment. I don't know the proper word for what I'm trying to describe!

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.
