Today I am going to share with you a project that I have wanted to try for awile now. I saw these cute dresses when I was down at the flea market this spring in Ohio. They were made out of old, vintage pillow cases that had embroidery on the bottom. I just thought they were the most adorable little dresses for little girls of all ages!! I just had to try an attempt at making one. So I bought these vintage pillowcases at an estate sale, they didn't have the embroidery on the bottom, but I LOVED the print. So here is my attempt at making my first pillow case dress.
Here is the chosen pillow case before it was cut in half and transformed into a dress. :)
Here is the finished product. After I cut the pillowcase in half to the desired length that I wanted it for my six month old, I then cut out arm holes and hemmed them to prevent fraying edges. I then sewed the top to make a casing so that my ribbon could easily fit through it and make cute little bows on the shoulders to tie everything together.
Here it is on my daughter. I put on a little pair of black leggings underneath. I am thrilled with how my first one turned out!!
Enjoy your weekend!!! ~Jessica
