First off, Helloooooooo! Its been awhile!
Second off....lets just get straight into it! Shall we? I've got a lot of catch up to fit in, haven't I?!
So just before Christmas I was inspired to see how much fabric I could use out of one pillowcase......re invent the pillowcase dress? Since Vintage pillowcases are a lot easier to find these days than sheets....well from my experience! And at 50 cents to a dollar each, its a great money saver as well!
So here's my version of the pillowcase dress!
Yes I know I added extra fabric....so technically its not all from one pillowcase....but in my defense I had to cut two bodices (after I stuffed up ), so my options were a bit slim...plus my little girl is 5, so one pillowcase would be stretching it a bit!
But honestly I love how this turned out, right down to the gingham skirt band! Which was just by chance that I had it in my stash and it added such a lovely touch!
The blue, is silk, also from my stash, and had been sitting around for awhile, so I thought why not? It teamed perfectly with the floral pillowcase, it was like it was meant to be!
The pattern I drafted by her measurements (hence a twice cut bodice) with a vintage style.....I just looove this back line on her!
She looks so sweet running around after our poor ducks! and walking down through our establishing food forest!
Love this photo of her in the long grass with her daddy in his bee suit in the background!
And thank goodness I got photos of her in it before she was let loose amongst the goats! Shes quite a grubby Lil Miss, she gets right in the thick of it when she wants too! Oh and the earrings are of her own styling....shes recently found my mums old clip on earring collection!!
