Description

I made this dress from a vintage sheet using a vintage pattern, Advance 9209. I made it in record time to wear on my trip to Disneyland last week (here I am posing by the Small World ride!). The pattern was originally for a pinafore (to be worn over a nightgown) so I altered it a bit to make it work as a sundress. I made my own bias tape for the trim.
