Wish I could sew!!

I bought a couple of pillowcase dresses off Etsy. I really like the thought of upcycling vintage il_430xN_50464441pillowcases. Plus you can wash the heck outta them and bleach them and they GE DIGITAL CAMERAstill hold up great. I have to say I do not like the grosgrain ribbon ties kind. But I found a few sellers who make fabric ties. This is my fave!  

You can find tutorials here, and pdf patterns and directions there and blog posts. But I like the ones that are more pleated than gathered and with fabric ties instead of ribbons.

I also thought for sure my little kidlet would gnaw on or fiddle with or untie the ties so I am tying them more on the back of her shoulder blades instead of on the tops of the shoulders.

That dress is so cute. Thanks for the comment on my blog about the pens. That is a great idea.
