41  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Now that's a pillowcase dress! on: August 06, 2013 03:41:21 PM
After seeing this darling tutorial http://doublestitching.blogspot.it/2012/01/mod-60s-line-dress-tutorial.html I knew just the fabric to use. I'd been hoarding this awesome thrifted pillowcase for a while ($0.59, sweet!) and decided it was time to cut into it. Following the tutorial, I used one of my daughter's tee shirts folded in half and then extended it for length. This was my first time doing any sort of a collar and I just adore a Peter Pan collar. I used the edge/opening of the pillowcase for this part and tried very hard to line up the pattern. I especially like the way the closure in the back is done.

I was almost finished with the dress and was feeling quite clever that things were going so well, no issues or messing up (like usual haha) and then I tried the dress on my daughter and that was when I realized, shitballs! I forgot about the freakin' seam allowance! The dress was too small of course. So I used up the last of the scraps (thank God I saved them in a brief moment of logic!) and made some little inserts to go in the side seams.

He's going to love it and if he for some reason has lost his mind and doesn't want it, I'd be more than happy to have it live with me! Rocks so hard.

So cute! I have yet tried my hand at socks, but I just might give it a whirl. Pinned!

I have a few skirts with that sort of yoga waistband and I like it because you can decide how low on your hips you want to wear it. I still really like the version you used for the striped leggings. It's a bit different.  Wink

Hot damn, those are rad. I especially like the way you did the waistband.
