I was torn between this and the "sheet to a maxi-dress", I discovered that because I'm so short (5") that I could use an old pair of King size pillowcases for the perfect length, didn't even need to hem them, took out a seam on one side of each, gathered the top, and I can sew it to an old Tshirt I had that was exactly the color of one of the patterns in the pillowcases!!!

The best instructions ever. Can't wait to make it for my grandson's graduation. Thanks

Love it! I can think of so many possibities from casual to evening dress.
