It must be SPRING!

You know when you are just in an etsy browsing mood! Well the other night I was just searching all over etsy just soaking in the creativity there, and I was amazed at how many pillowcase dresses were for sale. But seriously it is the spring and EVERY little girl needs a pillow case dress. This one pictured is one of my first pillowcase dresses that I made almost a year ago, using this tutorial. I could not believe how simple this dress was to make! It is great for beginners. I loved this tutorial because of the elastic in the neck, rther then a draw string. I just feel safer with elastic rather then a draw string!!??!! Maybe I am weird!  Anyways a pillowcase dress is the perfect spring/summer dress, so go get sewing!! The ruffle pants under this dress was made from an old pajama bottom pattern I had and I just added a ruffle to the bottom of each leg.
