Sweet Buttercup 1950’s Vintage Sheet Dress

I made this dress out of a thrifted sheet. I used old pillowcases for the lining and made my own piping out of thrifted bias tape. I used that handy-dandy Coats and Clarks invisible zipperfoot to get in close to the cording. My talented daughter took the great photos and also taught me a few tips and tricks in photoshop editing. I’m really happy with how it turned out and I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to wear it. McCall’s M6466.
