Pillowcase Dress

Hi Stampers,

Today I have another sample to share with you from Stampin' Up!  It's an awesome Pillowcase Dress!  I think it would be so fun to make one of these for my little Callie Ann.
Accessories and Tools:

Blushing Bride 1/2" Stitched-Poly Ribbon
Candy Cane Christmas Designer Fabric: Eight at 5" x 5" and four at 2" x 28"
Candy Cane Big Designer Buttons
Big Shot
Flower Folds Bigz XL Die
Pink and white thread
Pink pillowcase
Pillowcase dress pattern
Safety pin

  1. Sew pillowcase dress using pattern of your choice. (We found our pattern on the Internet.)
  2. Make spaghetti straps by running ribbon through front and back casing. Tie front and back ribbons at one shoulder to create a bow.
  3. Make ruffle with four 2" x 28" strips of polka-dot fabric. Gather and sew to pillowcase dress using white thread. Sew ribbon on top of the ruffle.
  4. Using the Flower Folds Bigz XL Die and polka-dot fabric, cut four 2-3/4" flowers and four 3" flowers.
  5. Stack four 2-3/4" flowers and sew down the center of each petal using white thread.
  6. Stack four 3" flowers and sew down the center of each petal using white thread.
  7. Attach button and ribbon to the flower and pin to dress with safety pin.
Thanks for stopping by today!
