A Duvet Cover To Dress Refashion!!

So I bought this duvet cover a while ago for only $2.80 with a coupon and have been mulling over how to refashion it.

I quite like the pattern and colours so it was just a matter of figuring out where to go with it.

I didn't want to just do the usual t-shirt style dress so I used this dress as my guide.  Then I just cut it out and sewed it up.  I hemmed and hawed about whether to put pockets, but it made my already wide hips look even wider when I put the pockets in, so I just sewed them closed and trimmed them off.

Here is the hem with the button holes from the bottom closure of the comforter cover still visible.

Here is the final dress.  I decided not to make a waistband as it interrupted the pattern of the fabric.  What do you think?  It is very cool and comfortable and I am quite happy with it.  My husband says it looks like a "Hausfrau" dress but I like it anyways.  It will get lots of wear in what is left of the summer.  Cheers, Michele.
