How to make a pillowcase dress - Part 2

Wednesday, January 28, 2015


               Armhole measurements
12 mos - 24 mos   measure in 3 1/2 in. across the top, and 4 in. down the side.
3T - 4T-  Measure in 3 1/2 in. across the top of the dress, and 4 1/2 in. down the side of dress.
5 - 6- Measure 3 1/2 in. across the top of dress and 5 in. down the side of dress.
7-8-Measure 4 in. across the top of the dress and 6 in. down the side of the dress.
Always prewash, dry, and iron your fabrics before cutting. Always backstitch at the beginning and end of your stitching.
                                          Ready to get started?
Cut your 2 panels for the front and back. Be sure if you're using a "directional" fabric, which means there is a right side up because of the graphics, that when you cut your length the fabric is turned the right way. Always cut an inch or so off before you make your first cut to make sure that side is straight.


            



Now you have your 2 panels for the dress cut. Notice when I cut my fabric I was careful to make sure the foxes are facing the right way, so here is my cut after I'm through. Now proceed to part 3 of the pillowcase dress tutorial and it will take you the rest of the way.
