I used a basic dress pattern that I inherited from my grams when she passed. Who knows how old this pattern is, but I thought it was great for the basic shape and that I could change whatever I wanted on it.

I was channeling a sassy “Hepburn” style!

I wanted a cute little cap sleeve so I took off the long sleeves. I wanted a more drastic neck line and wanted the back to dip down a bit further to.

This was a super simple dress to make, so I might make more like this. The best part was how cheap this ended up being too… I made the whole dress with half of a twin flat sheet that I picked up at Wal-Mart!  Less than $8.00 and yet I can wear this out and look like a million bucks when the hubby and I decide to have a date night!!
