Here is one of the recent sewing projects I completed. It is a pillowcase dress I made for Scarlet to wear this summer. The pillowcase is from Kate and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to do this project. She had a fabric giveaway about a month ago and I won one of the 2 fabric piles.
The dress could also be a top once it is too short so perhaps it could work next summer too. We will see. This was a very simple and fast project. I found the directions here.
To my surprise, I received a package from Carrie on Saturday and was ecstatic to find that she sent these 4 vintage pillowcase. I had left a ' oh woe is me' type comment on her blog about how I never get to go thrifting anymore. Carrie always finds such great things. She also included buttons, a Holly Hobbie pincushion (!), some bias trim, some really cute vintage children's clothing patterns and a retro craft/cook book that is too much and had me laughing out loud several times. Thanks again Carrie!
