Pillowcase Dress

Check out what happens when you take a .99 pillowcase from Goodwill, make a few snips in it and add a few yards of elastic— new dress!

The standard sized pillowcase I started with:


Close up of the dress itself:

And close up of the bodice. I used single fold bias tape in two different widths to make the “casing” on the inside of the pillowcase for the elastic and finished it off with a grosgrain ribbon bow!

(I would just like to mention that these aren’t the best pictures- but I was standing outside in 32 degree weather dressed like this just to get a picture! When its that cold and I’m dressed like that- you don’t get many takes!)
