This dress was made from a 1985 pattern I found in a thrift store.
I found a dress pattern from 1985 in the thrift store the other day for .29c. So I decided to give it a shot with an old bed sheet of mine. This is how it turned out! The shoulder straps were a bit too thick for my liking, so I made a couple of tubes of fabric (black) to bring the straps in a bit more. Then I just added my favorite thick black belt and everything seemed to come together nicely!
