Pinterest Inspired Day Three: Pillowcase Dress

I love sundresses in little girls but being on the Oregon coast my little girl doesn't have much need for one.

Fortunately this summer we are headed to southern California for a few days. These pillowcase dresses are popping up everywhere and are too cut to pass up a try at making one.

I pinned a tutorial from littlebiggirlstudio.blogspot.com

This tutorial was very user friendly with simple to follow instructions for both elastic casing and fabric tie casing. I chose elastic casing and added piping to the band. I like piping and think it gives a more finished look to the dress. There is also a pattern to download on this site too. However, I would have liked a simple PDF file instead of being directed to a sharing site that gave me a bunch of pop-ups.

Piper loves this dress and will wear it rain or shine! I am sure I will have an occasion to make more for her.
