now i can say i have.....
i have been admiring those cute pillowcase dresses that a lot of blogging mommas and g-mommas make for the young girls in their lives. i finally decided it was time to sit down at our 8 year old brand new (i had never used it, altho hubby had, once) sewing machine and try to make one for our granddaughter. i found these cute little notions at the sewing store and they inspired me even more to get my sewing on.
found a couple yards of fabric at the thrift store instead of searching any further for a non-existent cute vintage pillow case. where do all these sewers of those cute dresses find them? surely, i could turn this fabric into a pillowcase shape with a few stitches. i was able to....:)
the white cotton fabric had a lovely flower textured pattern....very sweet.
4 hours later...i know most sewers could make this in like ummmm... 30 minutes...a sweet little pillowcase dress for our granddaughter, courtney.
we went to visit her this past weekend....and it was just a wee bit big for the sweet little love.....but i am sure it can easily be altered, right? i see my first attempt at alterations in my future already when she comes to visit us ......and the sewing machine.
