I love the pillowcase dresses-and soooo wanted to make one. Well, my niece gave me the opportunity to do just that! She loves Pooh and so this dress was a big hit with her!

You are definitely going to do more now....she is so cute and the dress does not look like it was made from a pillowcase!!! 

How old a child will fit into a pillowcase dress?  Is it just for toddlers?  I have two nieces, 2 and 4--just curious if both would fit as I want no jealousy issues!!

You can make a pillowcase dress is just about any size by adjusting the length.  And when they are too short to be a dress they are cute tunic tops! 

I make pillowcase style dresses from regular cotton quilting fabric.  It is so hard to find cute pillowcases at decent prices.

Here is the length chart I use.
Size Chart

Size  Length
3 Months  12 inches
6 Months  14 inches
9 Months  16 inches
12 Months  18 inches
18 Months  20 inches
2 Toddler  22 inches
3 Toddler  24 inches
4/6 Toddler  26 inches
Size 5/7  28 inches
Size 6/8  30 inches

The pooh fabric came from Hancocks. When I saw it I knew it had to be made into a pillowcase dress for my niece! Of course, I am a huge Pooh fan myself! The ribbon was actually from the dollar store-but it matched the green in the dress perfectly.

Both your niece and the dress are incredibly cute!  Thank you so much for the length guidelines.  I've often seen fabric with a cute border and I wondered what I could make with it.  Now I know!
