PillowCase Dresses

I have jumped onto the PillowCase dress wagon . . .
 These little dresses are so fun to make and the possibilities are endless.

Seriously.
Once you start buying pillowcases, you can be making dresses for a while.

The instructions are simple . . .
Use the hem of the pillowcase as the hem of the dress. The top is cut to size and simple armholes are made. (measure from the neck to the length you want and add two inches)
The top edge is turned under making a casing for a ribbon or tie. The underarms are turned in a tiny hem stitch.

Then you can embelish with ruffles and trim . . .

The only thing cuter is Hope running around in her pillowcase dress ~ and for some reason, I can't find a single picture of that.
Not to worry . . . there will me more to follow.
LuLu is on a roll ~

Don't forget to check in at Smiling Sally for more blues and Boogie Board Cottage for her Masterpiece Monday.
Y'all enjoy ~
