First Pillowcase Dress

Whipped this up last night for Miss G. It's an OwlyBaby Pattern that I purchased from Etsy called the "Betsy Pillowcase Dress." Thought I would make each of my daughter's a little summer dress. It was a good pattern but I had to alter it a bit as my daughters are on the petite side. My 4 year old loves Hello Kitty and I've had this fabric lying around for some time now so I thought it would be the perfect choice for her. Of course when she realized I had made her a dress this morning she wanted to wear it to school and it was too out came the stitches and some altering later it was all done. Not exactly how I wanted to spend my morning while getting them ready for school...but heh, she's one happy girl!
I got a chance to work on French seams which I only ever did one time before. I didn't have any problems with the help of Youtube! Love that! I also made some homemade bias binding for the armholes which turned out well too. I'm going to make my 19 month old daughter one from some Denyse Schmidt fabric...can't wait to see how it will turn out!!
Hope you're enjoying a great day!
