Rolling like thunder under the covers

This is my second made by me frock using a 1960's Simplicity pattern. My bestie Miss J gave me this glorious vintage sheet still in the original packaging a couple of years ago, I adore the colours & the print, but I felt like it was too good to sleep on! So I made shift dress number 2. I found the whole thing easier second time round, & I could complete this dress in a day if I didn't need to be horizontal between stages. My only issue is I think I made the back piece too big because I left out the zip, & decided to cut it on the fold instead of having two back bits. But that meant the fit was a bit off. Other then that I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I made a matching belt and headband too.
