I have been wanting to try out this cute little dress for my 2 1/2 year old daughter. I have seen it online but not in person, so I thought I would take a stab at making one. It is a simple pattern that I found in a variety of places on the internet. I took those directions and did a little improvising of my own and came up with the sweetest little slip-dress. It can be modified for a variety of ages and sizes - it is so versatile.
It's called a pillow case dress because people would make them out of old or vintage pillow cases. I used regular fabric because I did not have any pillow cases in good enough shape to use! The top shoulder area has ribbon so you can adjust the dress to your needs. I think it turned out so cute! Sarah had it on last night and she did not want to take it off. A true fashionista in the making...
It was very simple to make and even a beginner could do it. I will be teaching a class at Sew to Speak here in the Columbus (Clintonville) so if you are interested in taking it, please call or stop by the shop. 4610 N High St or 614-267-3011.
Here are some of the websites that I used to gather info on making it:
There are so many talented people out there!!
