I LOVE your recycling of the beautiful table cloth. I have several vintage table clothes and now i have inspiration too. Your dress is wonderful!

Love it - you have such an eye - I would've never thought to transform that tablecloth into such a lovely dress!

You should send your photo to Simplicity. Your dress is gorgeous and I would never have seen it in the pattern illustrations. I always love seeing your creations.

this is so incredibly inventive and chic. I could never wear this but you look like you just stepped off a runway. Fabulous!

What more can I say about it that hasn't been said other than you take the best darn photos!! It sure helps to have your zillion watt smile!

This is terrific - I love seeing old linen refashioned and your result both shows of the retro fabric and is very trendy

That is seriously cool. I go to a lot of estate sales and so often the crochet items seem to be ignored. Good for you! The original crocheter is smiling on you.

What a creative way to use a vintage piece! So much work went into that cloth and this is a beautiful way to show it off. I love to see items like this being used instead of packing them away because they are "too nice".
