Here’s one of the tunic dress variations free for download on My very first dress ever.

Material Notes

Since I’m new to this, I decided to go to the Goodwill to see what I could find for fabric. I ended up making this from a bedsheet. Hehe. Looks like Ikea, but I could be wrong…

    This is lovely! It really suits you too. I can’t seem to find this pattern anywhere, though… could you tell me where it is? Thanks!

    I think this is a great pattern. I’ve used it to make a top and a dress. I really love your version, it looks lovely on you.

    I’m so happy that you all like it! Very encouraging indeed. I’m also happy that I coaxed some fellow bedsheet users to come out of the closet. :) Reduce, Reuse & Recycle!

    I love it, I saw your dress and downloaded the patter. I have a bed sheet too that I think I am going to use for fabric. Yours is so cute! Thanks for the inspiration!
