My First Dress Ever & I love it!

Added Apr 29, 2010

by thehouseofhe...

Montreal, Canada






This project was started with McCall’s Pattern M5787 I didn’t add sleeves to the garment and I lengthen it to make an extra cute spring into summer dress.
The dress is created from a cotton blend reclaimed bed sheet my boyfriend bought for me. I don’t think it was ever used and it has this wonderful grain to it that I just couldn’t capture with the camera.

I blogged about it here:

    this is so cute. i never would have bought the pattern from looking at the cover, but your version makes me want to go out and buy it.

    Thanks so much for the great feedback ladies! I to think it is a little weird that 3 of us all have the same sheet. If you create something out of it let me know I would love to see it!
