magneticfields added the project Blue polka dot sheet dress
I made this dress out of an old fitted sheet that doesn’t fit my current bed. I modified the pattern I used for the double-sided apron, making the skirt fuller and shorter.

magneticfields added the project Blue high-waisted bubble skirt
I made this in about an hour one night because I had some extra fabric. There is another layer underneath that is more of a bubble skirt in a darker blue that gives it shape.
