This is a how to video for making a pillowcase dress for a little girl
@SAShold I use 1 1/2 inch ribbon, but you can use whatever appeals to you the length is anywhere from 10″ to 12″ per piece depending on the bow size you desire.
Hope this helps,
@CharmedMamaofTwo Hi sorry for the delayed response, yes you can use fabric just measure the width if a pillow case and the length from the collarbone to how long you want the dress to be. You can make a template just for your little one by using an existing piece of clothing, top or dress and add about an inch and a half on the length for the casing. hope this helps!
how long and wide are the strips of ribbon that you are using?
Thank you for this. Im so excited to do it.
Is there an easy way to make a pillowcase dress out of regular fabric instead of a pillowcase? Also, may I ask if your arm-hole template is the size you use for all sizes, say a one year old? Thanks!
My future daughter is going to wear pillowcase dresses
Thanks So Much for your Time. I have a one year old grandaughter and I made her two pillowcase dressses, but your way is great. Thanks again for your time, Kim
this is cute!
Wow…I really Loved the Idea…gonna Make One fer my Niece
How long is your ribbon?
Great tutorial on making the dress!!!!!!!
hey cant u just use binding for the underarm it looks better especially with different colors like a solid to match the ribbon
This might be a silly question but what do I do with the folded flap on the inside of the pillow case. I assume that is the bottom of the dress?
thanks for the tutorial and make the steps so simple. Will try to make one this weekend. I need some ribbon.
I can’t wait to try this! Thank you for the great video!
Estate sales are a good bet also! Check your mom or grandma’s closet too.
the thrift store/goodwill/salvation army always has lots of pillowcases vintage kinds too
I was thinkinking the same thing about the elastic. where would you find vintage pillow cases by the way Hope someone replies.thanks
You are all so welcome, have fun!!
Thank you !!!
Great ideas & Cute Dress =)
Thanks this is a great video
Thank you for being so simple and easy to understand. My mom who has sewn for years and knows my ability level (or inability, really) giggled at me when I told her I wanted to make a pillowcase dress. You really simplified it and I totally have confidence now! Thanks so much! I will let you know how it turns out!
Great instruction, can’t wait to make one for my niece. Thanks!
Hi, Yes you do cut the sewn edge of the pillowcase off leaving the opening as the hem. and you could use anything else in place of the ribbon including making your own bias tape etc… Hope this helps-Julie
