I would love to make a couple of these dresses for my daughter to have this summer they look so sweet. I am new to sewing and would need instructions.

Thanks have a great day

Oh Yea!!

I have had a beautiful old pillowcase for literally a year and a half intending on someday finagling (sp?) a dress out of it!
This will be my motivation.

I have used this pattern with success. I actually change it now and add elastic at the neck and use bias tape to bind the arms and extend it up to be the straps.

I've sent copies to everyone who requested them so far.

To the ladies outside the US - I sincerely apologize for the delay! I've been ill and unable to get to the post office...but yours went out airmail this morning.

Please, if you use the pattern I sent out, e-mail me photos! I have no toddlers anymore and no time to sew , so I want to live vicariously through you ladies and see your lovely handiwork!

I used these general directions (scroll down to June 23): http://rowena.typepad.com/rostitcher.../06/index.html

I didn't have a pillowcase, so I used a piece of fabric 44" wide. I folded it with the serged edges together and then cut it to 21" long using a long quilting ruler. I hemmed the serged edges then turned it so the seam went down the back in the middle. Then I took another dress pattern (that had short sleeves) and traced the sleeve opening onto an index card. I cut that out and laid it on the "pillowcase" and cut out the armholes from that. I made my own bias tape by cutting a strip 1 inch wide and ironing the edges in. Otherwise I followed the rest of the directions from that site. One dress I used grosgrain ribbons for the ties and one I made my own by cutting 2" wide strips and sewing up the edges, turning inside out, etc. I just didn't like the idea of unfinished bias tape as the ties. I also used a 7" piece of elastic instead of a 6" piece.
