Pillowcase Dress

I've been sewing again, and boy is it fun!

I wanted to try my hand at making a pillowcase dress, but I didn't have any pillowcases to spare.  So I got 3/4 yard of this adorable strawberry fabric, and made my own pillowcase.  Then I went to work adding armholes and a casing for the ribbon at the neckline.  It was SUPER easy, and fast.

Best of all, it fits BOTH my girls - as a dress for Ruby, and as a tunic/short dress for Samantha.
