I just made this pillowcase dress for Emma. She was not in a modeling mood, which is why Mr. Hanger and Ms. Fence had to help me out. Even after reading several tutorials, I was still surprised at how easy this dress was to make. I thought about doing a tutorial, which I’ve never done, but there are so many out there already. So I’ll just brag on myself a little.
I got the pillowcase at Goodwill for a buck. I hadn’t realized that the pillowcase had two different fabrics on each side until I started cutting. I used the strip I cut off of the closed side to make the bow (http://www.craftaholicsanonymous.net/how-to-make-fabric-bows-tutorial). I used the half circle I cut out for the arm hole to make pockets.
I machine-stitched the bows on because my hand sewing blows and takes me forever. I know this bow won’t come off.
I love how this dress came out. Before I started, Katie didn’t want a pillowcase dress. After I was finished, she changed her mind. Yay!!! I love that seeing how it came out made her want one. Makes me hold my head up a little higher.
