I found this tute here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305086.0 and decided to make my daughter a pair .. although I didn't use a pillow case, instead I used some old curtain material I had laying around because it was a nice colour and very light weight...only problem I have with these is that I actually made them slightly big for my daughter and didn't have ribbon in my craft box to match... so I intend to either fix them or make her another pair

and I also found this adorable 1/2 shirred fabric at fabricland last time I was there and Just knew it had to become a dress for my DD... although not exactly finished as I've decided to add straps because it just wont stay up on her...
to show how full the "skirt" is:
to show the "straps" I intend to add(made form the bottom of the dress that was cut off to hem):
and to show the true colour since my camera washed out the others:

C&C welcome!!

the dress is cute, I totally agree about adding straps, little girls should be able to play with having to  worry about a wardrobe malfunction!

They are cute.  I think the straps will be a great addition, I can't imagine kids 'hold-up' tube-styles very well (even if it is shirred)...

Yea... I still haven't got around to adding the straps...but I can guarentee they will certainly work to hold it up...as she has another similar store bought dress I has to add ribbon straps to also!
