I made this dress for the Walk in the Wild event at the Oakland Zoo on Saturday. It used to be a vintage flat sheet. I used Simplicity 5430 from 1972 with a few alterations, namely the sleeves and some fit work. Came out great I thought. I love the design. I do recommend this pattern. :)
one vintage flat sheet (I didn’t use all of it), cotton contrast fabric, lining, invisible zipper
