Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness

Pillowcase Dresses

All the pillowcases harmed in the making of this post were thrifted for 50 cents a piece!! These are such simple, easy, fast dresses to make. It takes about 15 -20 minutes to make one of them.

This is the one I made last night. C1 is trying to hide the fudge pop that she dropped down the front of it. LOL

Here’s another one.

And now for my FAVORITE!

Not only thrifted but VINTAGE!!! It had a tiny hole in the side so I patched it up and covered it with a gingham and eyelet (<3 <3) pocket! I just love green and pink together!!!

Next up for me is a one hour sundress. McCall’s Easy M6074-


In this fabric –

The fabric is light pink with SPARKLES!!! Β Yes, I am a girly girl. I LOVE pink and sparkly things. πŸ˜‰

A word to the short people out there that might want to make this….. If you are like me, 5′ even and you want a LONG dress cut it a little shorter than the 2nd longest view…. LOL Seriously…

So, anyone else think that pattern has a 70s feel to it?? It reminds me so much of the 70s maxi dress patterns that I have seen lately. But maybe that’s just me…. πŸ˜‰

What kind of projects are YOU doing?? Leave a comment and I will check it out! I always follow back. πŸ™‚

    The dresses are adorable!
    Just had to tell you how precious C1 looks. Might be that she reminds me of my oldest granddaughter. Slender, willowy and beautiful.
    I have just started following you and am on the way to the “Will” for pillowcases.

  3. Stacy I love the pink and green. My middle daughter loves the one above the green and pink. πŸ˜‰

    How come I never look like the models on the pattern envelopes?

  5. Those dresses are really cute… kinda stinks that my C is getting too tall for them… I have to make her pillowcase skirts πŸ™‚

  6. I love these dresses but haven’t had time to sew in ages! Very cute though. It’s great to “meet” you, I’m following you too!

  7. I bet I can make one of these. It helps that most of the sewing is mostly done. Now off to the thrift store to find some pillow cases and ribbon.

  10. These are so cute and you make it sound easy – maybe I’ll give it a go next summer when my baby girl is a bit bigger (she would swim in a pillowcase right now, lol).
    Thanks for stopping by my blog too!
