I came across a tip the other day on The Polka Dot Chair where she suggested using sheets to sew with. While this may be a no brainer to some of you, honestly it had never occured to me. So when I was browsing through the Sunday ads and saw that a local department store had some sheet sets on sale I ran right out and bought 2 sets. From one twin set I've estimated that I will be able to make at least 5 outfits, and since the whole set was only $10.00, than I just made Penny a dress for $2.00. That's not too bad.
The pattern I used was Simplicity 5226. This was a super simple dress to make and would have taken me much less time if I hadn't made some rookie mistakes. I'll definitely be using this pattern again. I did make this intending for it to be an everyday play dress, but I almost think it's too pretty for her to get dirty.
