1-hour romper from a pillowcase

Queens, New York...






Had this project in the back of my mind for a while, and finally just got inspired to do it before I dropped my machine off for a “tune-up”

Just need a pillowcase, some elastic and a mirror!

      I can try to help – are you using a jersey pillow case or cotton? I have only done it with jersey, so I wonder if that may be causing a problem. Can you be more specific as to what isn’t working?

    Very clever! American Apparel just lost $35 and yours is cuter!

      Haha, yes I often see things at American Apparel that I really like, but think “I could sooo make that for way less!” Thanks for the comment :)
