pillow dress for Marie

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

      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!
