Slightly Belated Easter Dress

by hulagirl

in 1950s

I made this dress for Easter out of a table cloth I bought for $3 at a thrift store.  It’s pretty ridiculous but I had fun making and wearing it.  I have also got a fantastic suggestion to make a dress for every holiday.  Is anyone else in?

Sorry the picture is kind of tilted.  I either need to fix my dress form or start making clothes for women with one leg shorter than the other. As always more on my blog.

OMG! I love love love this funny dress! I’m totally down with dressing for the holidays, count me in! My dress for Easter was far less eggs-traordinary than this, so fab!

What a quirky (if you don’t mind me saying so) cute little dress! I love how you incorporated the black with it. Very nicely done!

I am really impressed that you managed to make that goofy fabric look pulled-together, stylish, and full of vintage charm. Very well done!

I absolutely adore that fabric! I need to hurry and work on my mad sewing skills because I can so see me wearing something along that line. Nicely done!

Adorable! What a ridiculous table cloth that would have been, yet strangely perfect for a summer dress! lol Love the contrast trim in black!

I love it! I think making a dress for each holiday is a fab idea!
