Pillow Case Dress


The idea of a pillow case dress is as old as the hills.  I have been wanting to make one for forever and finally did.  I followed these instructions from Freshly Picked.

It turned out cute, but I think it also looks like Bridget is wearing my old pillowcase.  I think if I bought contrasting color bias tape instead of making my own out of the pillow case scraps and added an embellishment to the bottom it may look more like a dress.  Here are a few pics of Bridget as a baby when the pillow case in question was still performing its original function.

And because little boys don’t wear pillow case dresses, but they do “mow” the grass

    Cute, Leah! And I love her pose. She wears it with style, like she does everything else.

    cute! and paddy in the noise cancelling headphones is sweetness. i’ve made a catrillion pillowcase skirts recently, because they take five seconds to make and alice can wear her pink sparkly shirts with them. i always add contrasting ric-rac along the bottom hem, it majorly takes away from the “pillowcase” look.
