These pillowcase dresses have long been making the rounds of the internet and I've always thought they looked adorable...until I made one. Now I can't decide if it's" Retro Hobo Adorable" or just "Frumpy Toddler Chic"? It made me think about my grandpa and the stories about the girls of his day making themselves underwear from old flour sacks and ending up with "Heart's Delight" stamped on their backsides (because not all flour companies sold their flour in pretty calico printed bags). My grandmother hated those stories!
I used this Fat Quarter Pillowcase Dress Tutorial but didn't have any fat quarter bundles so I had fun using up some leftovers in my stash. I'm pretty sure long time readers will recognize the quilties some of these fabrics came from. And I have to say, Cupcake loved prancing around in it so much that I might make her another one. But I was kind of hoping this would be cute enough to put her in for going to Mass this summer (with a little shrug) and now... it kind of looks way too
frumpy casual to me. What do you think?
(Not much caring for the side-tie/one-shoulder option, I was thrilled to find this back tie version!)
