A pillowcase dress: simple, sweet.... and painfully easy.

Jul 25, 2010

ok... so i know this is totally not news... alot of people know how to make this simple dress and it is perfect for beginners.... it only recently dawned on me that its called a pillow case dress because you can make it out of a PILLOW CASE... so i bought a couple and gave it a try... too freaking easy!

You can find some easy instructions Here.
Tip:  when you are making the straps cut the ribbon for each side in half and sew in two inches of elastic. This way you can leave the dress tied and stretch it over your child's head ... and you don't have to worry about sewing in any elastic on your dress.
I made a dress for each of my girls with these 1.00 thrifted pillowcases.
yummy yellow vintage looking goodness...

try one!
