I have made my first dresses this weekend and I am oh so very proud! They are just pillowcase dresses and not massively difficult but I made them myself and it has raised my confidence so much. I am going to bite the bullet and get out the patterns that have been gathering dust with the reams of material I bought weeks ago! I don't like getting things wrong but its getting to the point where I wont do anything for fear of it not being right, so I am turning over a new leaf and getting stuck in! If it goes wrong who cares? No one needs to know and how do you learn if you don't try new things?
So any way... pillow case dresses...a million and one tutorials and patterns online so here are just the photos....
As Monkey Girl is so tiny hers was made with just half a pillowcase. I cut it in half ripped the seams and rejigged them so the tube of material was the right way round and carried on as with Freckles dress.
I have plans to make them two more each after a choice EBay buy of "vintage" pillowcases! I will also have enough to make some summer bags...exciting times!!
See you soon
