Unfortunately, I didn't have any pillowcases I wanted to use, so I started from scratch. I used an old sheet for one and fabric from my stash for the other two.
The first dress came out too big, so it went to The Girl. The second two were a good fit for a brand new two year old.
After several hours of cussing, spitting, throwing things, three broken needles and taking my sewing machine apart and putting it back together, here are my attempts at the infamous Pillowcase Dress.
This is the first one that came out too long.
This is the one I made with the old sheet that came with the vintage crib I bought for Baby's room.
Phew. I'm glad that project is over.
Both the girls wore them for Mother's Day.
Speaking of birthday girls, here are some shameless pics of my niece.
The baby bed, quilt and baby were all my sister's when she was little.
The bed was made by my dad and my mom made the quilt.
My mom gave the bed a fresh coat of paint and gave her all three for her birthday.
My sister made her cake.
So cute I can hardly stand it.
Now, the whole fam is off to the zoo and then Forest Park for a picnic.
Then to the Rock Farm for the weekend.
It's our Friday!
