Pillowcase Dresses

I’ve been busy making various Pillowcase Dresses this week – so fun! There is a great tutorial HERE. I didn’t use the bias tape as they did – I just serged the edge but you could also just turn it under. These are super quick to make. They’re perfect play dresses for those little girls who have to wear a dress everyday. Also, picture an older girl wearing it with leggings underneath. Or a preteen girl wearing it over a longsleeved shirt and jeans. I put it on myself, but I filled it out so there wasn’t much gathering at the neck, so it really just looked like I was wearing a pillowcase – not too flattering. Don’t judge a pillowcase either – the one I thought was ugly (yellow big flowers) turned out pretty cute in a retro way – and even a plain pillowcase looks cute with a ribbon added to the bottom. Have fun creating!!


Looking at the last picture, I had one king-size pillowcase, so it was longer than the rest. There was enough material to make a whole outfit. I can’t decide if this outfits says “what a cute boutique ensemble!” or “is that a pillowcase your child is wearing?!”
