Los Angeles, Cal...
I used a vintage dress pattern from the early 60s to make this dress out of vintage Star Wars sheets. I did consider using a pattern from the same year as the sheets (1977!), but decided I don’t love 70s fashion enough :\ All in all, the materials and pattern cost a total of $6.50. I love thrift stores!
The bodice ended up a little too big, and the skirt hem a little wonky, but I still love how unique this dress is. Also, Darth Vader can stare menacingly at everyone who gets in my way!

50/50 cotton/poly blend sheets for both the shell and lining, seam binding, zipper, hook and eye
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
