I do not have any new fabric creations, so I am going to repost a design from November.
Recently a friend gave me a stack of vintage, hand-embroidered pillowcases. I had no idea what to do with them, so I just put them in a basket in my shop in Pasadena. They are cute and somebody will be nostalgic and want to buy them, right? Well, there they sat and sat and sat.
I don’t have any little girls and my grandSON isn’t very feminine. So, I didn’t know about the latest rage, pillowcase dresses.
My sweet young friend, Maria, came to our quilting, sewing, craft night with material to make a Halloween dress for Liliana. I went home, searched the internet and started making pillowcase dresses.
They are so easy to make. The original pattern said to measure up from the bottom 20″, so that’s what I did. I then notched out a “J” for the armhole. I used the material that I had cut off to make a binding for the armholes. The last sewing step was the casing for the ribbon tie.
Last Sunday, I took the dress to church to check sizes and get some reactions. Everyone loved them. The suggestion was to make them a little longer. I tried it on a 2T and a teenager. The neck is a drawstring, so it can be tightened or loosened. As the sweetheart grows, she can wear leggings or pants under the dress. During the winter, she can add a t-shirt under it or a sweater over it.
Other fabric designs can be found in the blog header.
Check back Monday and find out what I find Marvelous.
