Pillowcase Dresses

Pillowcase Dresses - i found these on a Martha Stewart site but decided to make a variation of them. Basically, pillowcase dresses are made from a pillowcase - with the top cut off and a drawstring threaded through as straps and neckline.

I thought that the drawstring could be a choking hazard so i replaced it with elastic. The straps are fixed.

Here's an example:

I added the ribbon as embellishment and to be continuous with the straps.

I made a couple more:

I used different fabrics to create a unique piece. I dont use a pattern so each one is always different and unique.

This one is reversible - patterned on one side and plain on the other
