My Very First Pillowcase Dress


Wow, I finally did it!  I finished a dress this weekend for Elle!  Seriously, I have two started that I never finished, so I was very proud of myself.  This is the first article of clothing that I have ever made!  Anyway, it's a sort of pillowcase dress.  I didn't use a pattern, I just cut out a piece for the bodice that was wider at the bottom, and was slightly smaller on the top.  I made my own binding using the contrasting fabric.  I know there are many tutorials all over blog land, but I'd be happy to show how I made it if you'd like.  Just let me know in the comments.
Sorry there have been fewer posts lately, I am trying really hard to balance this blog, my family, and preparing for my first craft show. My brother just left last night, and my mom comes this week, so I have been busy!  I know you all love new posts, so I will continue to pump out as many as can!




Make sure to come back on Wednesday for my Share the Wealth Wednesday Link Party!
