Los Angeles, Cal...
I found this awesome Batman sheet at the thrift store and knew I had to make it into a dress so I could wear my geek on my sleeve…errr, dress. I used a vintage dress pattern from 1970, Simplicity 8722. Since it was a knit, I omitted the zipper. The crazy fabric also called for a more simple dress, so I didn’t use the keyhole cutout either. The resulting dress, while not quite a muumuu, still benefited from a belt.
I loved how easy it was to sew up this dress; no facings or seam finishing required! And now my husband thinks I’m crazy for wearing this out in public. Whatever, I’ll just wear it to Comic-Con next year, and see how crazy they think I am there!
