That dress

Ruby fell in love with this dress from here.
I decided that $200 was way too much to spend
on a dress up for her.
We looked around for patterns and came
up with this one by McCalls as the closest match.
It was very confusing to her because on the pattern
envelope the dress is not all white.

Here it is! She loves it so much.
I had such a hard time trying to figure out
what to make it out of. It requires a lot
of yardage which would make it very expensive.
I settled on IKEA sheets! $2.00 each and
completely machine washable which is
very important for a dress up, esp.
one that is white!
The trim has been hanging around in my trim
box for years. I think it came from an estate sale.
Total cost including pattern $14!
