I made this dress from a thrifted bed sheet. So comfy! I used a vogue pattern (v1102) but made quite a few changes. I lengthened the bodice to the waist instead of the empire waist, changed the neckline slightly, shortened and widened the ties and made a gathered skirt instead of the flared circle skirt.
The fit isn’t perfect and my zipper skills still need a bit of work.
I made this dress in June to attend the Detroit Symphony Orchestra perform the score to Psycho. It was awesome!
