These are all so cute – I don't have a little girl to make these for so I'm just gonna need to figure out how to make them in my size!
Either that, or make them for my sons and start saving for the therapy.
I'll be bookmarking this for summer. Thanks!
I made the snappy toddler dress for my niece. It turned out to be more of a shirt than a dress, but still really cute.
I have made lots of the onesie dresses for my girl-they are a summer favourite. They helped me get some extra mileage out of some too-short t-shirts and a couple of treasured but outgrown sundresses. I also turned one of my husband's old button down shirts into a cute sundress that I am very proud of.
Inspired by your pillowcase dress tutorial, I wanted to find one that was based on an actual pillowcase, and I found this cute one: http://flashbangfibers.blogspot.com/2010/04/pillowcase-dress-tutorial.html. Soooo, this is kind of tacky since it's not actually a PB dress BUT it's kind of a tip, in case someone has a pillowcase they want to use. I also like that it uses elastic and bias tape, instead of ribbon. You know you love some bias tape!
Yes.. I have made it.. Snappy Toddler Dress & One Shoulder Dressy Dress. You can check it out at my blog http://miaach.blogspot.com/… Love to made it some more…
I am just waiting for some fab Anna Maria Horner and Echino fabrics to arrive in the post so I can make my first ever dress for my daughter for her first birthday! Think I'll go for the pillowcases dress. Wish me luck!
I made the pillowcase dress for my cousin's baby girl. Wish I had a girl because I'd be making her a whole bunch. Every woman I know who's having a girl is getting one of these from me – so easy and cute!
I have made two pillowcase dresses from the tutorial… one for Halloween (a fun and funky candy print on black fabric) and another for Turkey Day (brown plaid with an antique blue accent that I matched with the ribbon ties). My family suspects I've had a labotomy behind their backs, because I went from utter craftlessness to sewing adorable dresses in the span of a couple of weeks. Gotta keep 'em guessing!
Next up: the Snappy Toddler dress for a sweet pink/black corduroy fabric I bought. I'm hooked!
I have made a pillowcase dress, have some others on my to-do list. Thanks for sharing.
Love the Snappy Toddler Dress! What would be the best way to adjust the size for a 18-24 month size pattern? Thanks.
