I made a little pillowcase dress from a gorgeous Ralph Lauren pillowcase I found at a thrift store yesterday. I used the wonderful tutorial on Rostitchery's blog. Thanks Rostitchery!




Now I want one for myself   Wink

What a cute dress!  I love the way you put a sash around it.  Very sweet.  I also love the pillowcase fabric.  It's gorgeous!

You little girl is precious too.  Love her curls!

That dress is so cute.  Luckily I have 2 adorable nieces I can make something like this for.  I don't think my dog would appreciate a pillowcase dress quite as much . . .  That fabric is great, too, especially with the red.
