recycled fabric = adorable dress

I got this nifty piece of cotton fabric a while back at my favorite Chicago thrift store.  I'm not quite sure what it is supposed to be... a scarf?  a wall hanging?  I loved the primary colors and graphic design and I knew I would use it for something awesome.  Someday.

It waited patiently in a box for months and months... while we moved... and unpacked...
And then I saw it again. 
I paired it with a yellow cherry-blossom-like print, bright red pom-pom trim, and big red buttons.  The inside of the bodice is yellow gingham.

I love it.
