pillow dress for Marie

Added Jul 2, 2010

Benesov, Czech R...






I made a dress for my little girl out of an old pillow cover. I love the fabric and thought it would get more use as a dress. This took me so much time to finish, otherwise it was really fast to make. There are two bows on a shoulder (which I´m not crazy about… might change that one day) and three buttons on a side of the dress. She can therefore put it on very easily. In the photos she was tired and upset, but at least she was standing and not walking/running :).

Material Notes

vintage cotton pillow cover




Garment Type
Casual, Vintage

      Thank you! The fabric (pillow) is quite old, my mother in law gave it to me.

      Oh, thank you! Yes, it´s a nice name, we don´t call her exactly like that quite often though :). There are so many variations.

    Good job! This is so much better as a dress than a pillow case, but what excellent pillow cases you must have lol!
