Pillowcase Dresses for Dolls & Girls

So, spent a chunk of the weekend working on pillowcase dresses for my two granddaughters and one American Girl doll. Picture above, though I hope to replace it with one soon of all three recipients wearing their dresses.

I was going to make these outfits for the first week of school, but now I’m thinking the colors make them good gifts for a Disney vacation. I got the material from Fabricland, just enough left in the bolt to make two kid dresses and a doll dress.

The pattern for a pillowcase dress is fairly standard and can be found at lots of places online, some free, some paid. This particular pattern came from Pink Poodle Bows. Depending on your sewing skills you might be able to do one on your own (without a pattern). The headband pattern came from Punky n Munky – excellent, easy-to-follow instructions – and I got a great price and shipping rate from Hairbow Center¬†for headband blanks, which delivered the goods within a week, a rare thing given that I’m located in Canada.

I love the pillowcase dress look for young girls. Lots of flexibility and room to move, adorable look, and very easy to work up.
