The $3 Dress

I went to the fabric store a week ago and found a 99-cent bin where I found this:

Mmm...2.5 yards and fabric goodness.
"What to make, what to make?"
 Here's my version of the Abu Dahbi dress. Whadya think? 
Looks more like the dress on the right, no?
What I reeeeally wanted was that it look like the one on the left.

It's a little sheer and a little short! I'll figure some way to pull it off and show you in my next
closet diary entry.

Hugs all around.

  9. yes totally... just make sure you get one with that rubber stuff on the bottom so the slip doens't rise up... or you can make it yourself :)
