More summer sewing!

I needed a light summer dress to wear around the house and found McCall's M5893 to fit the bill! It's from their One Hour Dress patterns, and it literally DID go together in an hour. I absolutely LOVE it!

It is recommended for knits only, but I HAD to try it in some of the vintage sheet fabric I have been stashing:

I even put the bottom of the skirt pattern along the ends of the sheet, and voila!, no hemming needed!
Although it does look like it could use a little ironing!

Cute! They look so cool and comfortable, too.

Do you get your patterns from a local store? or where? It seems like all of the stores I have checked patterns run around $10 and I'm too cheap to pay that much for a pattern then on top of it have to pay for fabric as well.

I buy my patterns from Walmart where they are half off of the retail price. **Sometimes** I don't mind paying 10 bucks for a pattern. If I find one I really like then I usually end up wearing it out from making so many dresses from it! This pattern was less than five bucks and I only buy fabric that is on sale, in the dollar bin, or from my vintage sheet collection from garage sales. I'm cheap, too!

all the WalMarts in this area quit selling fabric/patterns, so I'm out of luck there. I tried looking online, but all the sites I checked were at least $10 w/ shipping for the pattern I wanted.
