How to make a Pillowcase Dress Part 1

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

The Pillowcase dress. Reminiscent of days gone by when women really did use everything they had and turned them into something new. Guess we're not the first upcyclers! I've had so many compliments from people on the pillowcase dresses I've made that my step daughter wears and many people have told me they would love to learn how to make them. They're easy and I think even you beginner sewists can do this, and you'll see, the more you make, the less time they take. Here's a few I've made.
