My First Pillowcase Dress

I have been meaning to have a go at a pillocase dress for ages but never had any spare (or nice) pillocases, anyway, I have recently aquired quite a lot so I thought I’d take one with the least attractive pattern topractice on (didn’t want to waste a snazzy one), it turned out to be extremely easy to make, even the bias binding, and weirdly once made up as a dress the print actually looks really nice, who’d have thunk it?

    That is super cute! Did you use a pattern or just wing it? I am new to sewing and would love to make one of these for my daughter.

    Hi Cindy, there are hundreds of tutorials out there on the net and I found this one (which I have looked for again especially for you because I never book marked it, d’oh) which gives a size guide and I sort of followed that one.

    I just finished making my daughter a dress from a sheet. The best part about using bedding is they are wash and wear plus dryer safe. Plus you can’t beat the thrift store price compared to fabric shops.
