I found this old Batman sheet at my Salvation Army and decided to make a dress out of it. The top is made from this pattern http://www.lekala.co/catalog/dresses/5199#model and the skirt was made using this awesome circle skirt calculator http://byhandlondon.com/pages/circle-skirt-app.

beautiful upcycle of a sheet!  The black touches makes the dress sophisticated but the Batman print keeps it fun and youthful...you did a splendid job on the entire outfit...I am very impressed that you placed Batman in the perfect focal area...not only pretty, but well executed!

This is a stunning dress.  I love how you used the black fabric to show off the print. Thank you for the pattern links.
