Pillowcase Dresses and Bloomers




Here is another sewing project that I made for my little girl for this summer!  So cute and so easy!  I followed two different patterns...one for the dress and one for the bloomers.  The links are listed below.  I do not have a serger (yet) :-) and so I really liked this girl's tutorial because she made this dress for someone to copy that didn't have a serger.  She finishes the seams with a 1/4 inch seam before she even starts the "making" of the dress.  It was super easy...seriously it took about 20 minutes from start to finish!  I went with her suggested measurements for the 2T/3T size of fabric and you can tell that the blue polka dot dress is a little too wide but it still is very cute and she will grow into it better as she gets bigger.  The black print dress I made several inches slimmer and it is perfect.  I also made it longer as well.  You can make it as wide or long as you would like.  I suggest making one in some fabric that you don't really care about and then change the measurements accordingly if needed.  Here are the links to the tutorials.  The dress pattern is on a blog and I have included the video regarding the making for the bloomers.

Hope this helps you make these adorable dresses and bloomers.  I am sure there will be more in my future!  Have fun and remember it is always homemade!
