I really like the dress on Simplicity 3513 - simple and cute. I've it a couple of times for my girls. Since it's pretty basic I thought it'd be a good remix....
The first thing that came to mind was a bustle - they seem to be all the rage in the craft blog world. I've seen a lot of them, but I hadn't seen a tutorial, so I just made it up as I went. With the back pattern piece I cut out a triangle. (Mental note - next time the triangle needs to go a lot higher, so the bustle hits on the rear, not the back of the knees.)
sheets as fabric - love that :)
