I liked the dress so much (see previous post), that I decided to make another with my own vintage fabrics (read: old bedsheets that my mom gave me). I used the dress from the kit for my pattern (tracing onto paper) and I used the sheet edging to make the ribbons.
I really like this dress because it's so soft -- the sheets had been washed so many times. The only thing I would've done differently is somehow fix the ribbons because one side of each is fraying (didn't anticipate that). Oh well, live and learn!
The bonus feature about this dress is when my daughter outgrows it, I could use it as a shirt with leggings or with pants underneath! Yay! I love versatile clothing.
