This is fabulous! Especially when it's hot in the summer I can transform my thick old dresses into something I can actually use.

Great Idea! Jean Hayes Dunn NC I would like to try this!

I hate not being able to go into a store selling material and not seeing a pattern book there, and there is never anyone in that department to help you. All I want is a simple at home coverup (that is not pj's or gown) to wear so that if company should happen to come I won't have to run for cover...

Very cute, shopping at the thrift stores this weekend!
