So you know what’s even cuter than one little pillowcase dress?
Three Pillowcase Dresses!
That’s kindof all I have to say about it. Except that this time I felt confident enough in my sewing skills (or lack thereof) to actually buy fabric.
Although my the fabric amounts / sizing of pillowcase dresses are… iffy… at best. I ended up with WAY more fabric than I needed. Enough to make a reverse dress, too!
But then I realized that my dresses were ridiculously large. Like they probably won’t even fit her next summer they are so ginormous. Not sure why I thought I had a 5 year old when I cut the fabric but whatever. She’ll wear them eventually. And in the meantime I had enough scrap left for a dress that fits her now:
Yay for way over estimating yardage!
Whatever you say, mommy. I'm pretty sure this is just going to get in my way...
The ties are a bit small on the now dress… I may replace them with ribbons:
Probably not, though. They get the job done.
In other the baby is cute news… check her new trick:
She can climb in and out of a rocking chair! Thrilling, I know. If you want even more thrills there’s a few more videos of it on Flickr. Honestly I’m just crazy excited about this because it’s another step on the path to walking and standing. Yay for walking!!!!
