I was visiting with my Grandma the other day and was telling her that I wanted to buy Kendall a pillowcase dress off etsy. She encouraged me to try and more one myself because they are very simple to make.
So I borrowed some material and found a tutorial online that I very loosely followed… meaning I hardly measured and just kind of winged it. I don’t follow directions well.
And this is what happened…
Not bad for a first timer, eh? I mean clearly I have sewn before but never made anything even remotely wearable.
I wish I’d made it a little wider and not as long and I might measure with my next pillowcase dress for Kendall. :)
*** Oh and the reason the hearts material was chosen for the dress is very cute! You see my Grandma made me a “heart” blanket back in my little Shelli days. This blanket followed me to movies on the couch and sleepovers. I’ve still kept it after all those years.
It’s faded quite a bit but you can still make out the hearts! :)
I just had to make something for Kendall with the remaining heart material when I saw it in my Grandma’s material stash!
