All Made Up and Nowhere to Go Dress

Love this dress made by verypurpleperson. I thought I would try my hand at it. So I took an old polyester bedsheet, cut it up, sewed with elastic thread for the first time, added pockets, and here's how it turned out:

Those brown straps are from my bra and not part of the dress.

Not bad for a first attempt. Some notes for next time:

1. Be careful about bedsheets or the fabric in general. This bedsheet is proof that stiff polyester just won't fall nicely.
2. Place pockets higher. On this dress, they bottom of the pockets almost reach my knees.
3. Cut the important elastic (at the top of the dress and the bottom of the bodice) shorter. The point is to get a nice fit.

Will try again.
