Solar System Dress

Ellensburg, Wash...






also known as a dress fit for a party on Mars!

After finding this awesome old bedsheet at Goodwill a few years ago, it took until this summer and my resolution to destash a bit to create this fun dress! Featuring a circle skirt, buttons down the back, and a triangle cut-out, the dress features all the planets + pluto!! :D The bodice is fully lined and the skirt has a bit of elastic at the center back to make it slip on a bit easier.

I finished it just in time to wear to the Mars Science Laboratory, also known as the Curiosity rover, landing party at my local museum of flight! It is a really fun dress to wear :)
