    thank you everyone for the lovely comments:) i know, it’s hard to believe that the fabric is actually a tablecloth!! The pattern was perfect for the fabric as it meant i could match the hem to the straps & the ruffles to the main body of the dress. I blogged about it here if you’d like to read more… http://www.lyndisblog.blogspot.com/

    I would have never guessed it was a tablecloth. I really gotta go to more second hand stores! Cool dress
