Today is my niece's birthday. She is turning the big 3! Yay!
She is the most adorable little girl, and I wanted to make sure
that she had an adorable little dress
to go with her big personality. So I made her a pillowcase dress.
Normally you would use an actual pillowcase to make this dress,
but I decided to make a paneled dress. So I kind of made my own pillowcase,
and then made the dress. Wooh!
Maybe I should of just found a pillowcase.
Just Kidding. . .it was so worth it!
I used 5 different patterns of fabric for this dress. And there
are 16 panels all around the dress.
The strip I made for the bottom of the dress is much longer than I
anticipated it to be, so I hemmed it
afterwards, and made it shorter.
I was going to give the step-by-step instructions on how to make it,
but I decided that would be a really long post, and well, Yah. It would be a really
long post, like I said before.
Once again the dress turned out longer than I anticipated, but I hemmed it later on!
Edit on May 2, 2012:
Here is the hemmed up version, and
with Brylee wearing her new dress.
And of course with a wide grin!
If anyone is interested in me making one for them, contact me
at firstname.lastname@example.org, or make
a comment on this post with your email, and I can contact you.
Happy Birthday Brylee!
Just over a week ago I planted sunflowers along my fence-line.

And now they are starting to sprout. Yay!
I will keep you posted on how they progress, if I can keep the bunnies from nibbling on them!
Any suggestions on how to keep them away from the sunflowers?
