Description

I was inspired a while back by the dress in a still shot of Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music (I included it in the project photos). Iā€™d been waiting for the right material to find its way to me, and a couple of weeks ago, it did.

The dress was made from a vintage sheet that was in wonderful condition. I used the Burda magazine May 2010 dress pattern #110 for the bodice portion of the dress. I just omitted the cap sleeves because they looked unflattering on me. For the skirt, I used one of my patterns for a simple 4-panel full skirt.

Feel free to see my blog, for more details and photos. Thanks!

    Your dress looks so sweet, I would love to wear something like that. I also love how you played with colors by wearing different belts and the shirt underneath. Congratulations.
