Fun day making pillowcase dresses

Friend: Have you ever made a pillowcase dress?

Me: I've got a pattern and have been wanting to make one.

Friend: Wanna get together?

Me: Yeah, Thursday (July 29th) at 11:00 my house.


Me: Hey, I'm making pillowcase dresses today... wanna come?

Other Friend: Sure!!!

So three of us girls got together and it was BLISS!! Our little girls were happy playing, the big girls were happy sewing.

I purchased this pattern/fabric kit from Lazy Daisy Cottage when I was up in St. George, Utah in May. The whole thing came in a kit with fabric cut precisely for your project and pattern. You basically are paying for the fabric and only a buck or two on the pattern. Totally worth it in my opinion. I am a pattern girl. I love exact measurements, pictures (on their blog), and directions. There are a few pillowcase dresses that I will link you to however, I REALLY like this one and my friends did too. I don't believe Lazy Daisy Cottage has them listed for sale on their website but if you call, I am sure they will ship you one.

You could try this tute or this other tute.

Give it a go!! This is such a fun instant gratification project.


  1. Darling! I wish I could have come to your "sewing party"!

  2. We will have one in St. George. I hope maybe we will make our way up next year?
