Los Angeles, Cal...
Woohoo! This is my first dress made without the use of a pattern. And even though the back looks a little wonky (hence the front-view only photos – hehe) I’m still exceedingly proud. I made it from a thrift store fitted bedsheet and copied an empire waist sleeveless minidress from my wardrobe, but decided to make it a maxidress — as I’ve seen so many this summer and just adore them. I also added a bit of crochet trim (not crocheted myself, I’m afraid!) to the top. I think it looks rather Jane Austen-esque — with a little bit of va-va-voom. ;)
100% cotton fitted bedsheet from the thrift store. Crochet trim.
