(Please pay no attention to the terrible picture)
I have been wanting to try one of these cute pillowcase dresses for a while, but with a little boy, it has been hard to come up with a good reason to make one. But I know a few little girls with birthdays in the next 6 weeks, so I plan on making a few for each of them. I also think these will be the perfect project for using some of my favorite fabrics that are patiently sitting on the shelf!
Unfortunately, because I take terrible pictures, you cannot see the super sweet pink swirl pattern on this particular dress. (note to self, get better at taking pictures)
As for the pattern, I reviewed a few different tutorials online, but really ended up free handing the pattern again on newspaper until I found a size and shape I liked. I like the versatility of the style....I like that it can be worn as a dress with tights and a long sleeve shirt underneath, or as a tunic over a tshirt and jeans, and then again in the summer with sandals.
I know the pillowcase dress is nothing new....in fact, its probably one of the oldest, simplest patterns out there...but don't you love it?! Feel free to link up ones that you have made, I would love to see them!
