The sheet was purchased at the UCP thrift store on Oddie Blvd in Sparks, I got 2 flat sheets and a pillowcase for $2.88, and only used one flat sheet for the dress, so fabric cost was about $1.50, the pattern was $1.50, and I had the zipper but probably paid $1.50 so the whole dress was less than $5 in raw material
Close up of the pattern. I made it in a size 16, which is a 30" waist, my goal measurement.
Finished product, shown with my floofy pink crinoline underneath. It needs to hang for awhile for the bias to settle before I can hem it
