Pillowcase Dresses: Pretty and Practical

Today is Shameless Commerce Tuesday and I'm promoting pillowcase dresses.  I've made several of these pretty and practical go-anywhere sundresses that could also be worn as a tunic or a jumper. I'm drawn to bright high quality 100% cotton designer fabrics.  The colors are so vibrant!  And cotton is a cool, breathable, durable fabric – perfect for children's clothes.

The Caroline pattern (used with permission) was designed by Mindy Leone of Frog Legs & Ponytails.  It also includes a doll dress version designed to fit American Girl dolls.  What little girl wouldn't love that?! Visit her website at http://froglegsandponytails.com, or her Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/froglegsandponytails.


Signing off now to finish (finally!!) staining the deck.  After that, I'll be ready for some quality sewing time in my Girl Cave. http://pasqueflowerponderings.blogspot.com/2011/05/girl-cave.html.


I'm have a brand new Facebook fan page and Twitter account.  I'd be delighted to have some Likes and Followers!

  1. Those are so cute! I wish they came in big girl sizes :)

  2. They are really adorable! I love the fun, bright colors, too. Is it weird that I want one for myself? lol.

  3. These are SO cute! I would totally wear these if they'd fit adults! They remind me of the dresses my mom used to make for me when I was a little girl. Beautiful.


  4. Very cute! Love the fabric pairings you used - the contrasting band adds so much to the dress.
