Avaleigh's Vintage Pillowcase Sundress
I have been missing from the blog world for a long time. I still check some blogs and love to see what other people are sewing, cooking, reading, and crafting and... I have not been idle. I have LOTS to share! I now have lots of free time to do so now that I have retired from teaching after a 46 year career.
This little dress was made for a dear friend and colleague's first grandchild several years ago. I used a gorgeous hand embroidered vintage pillowcase for the skirt. Check out that pretty crocheted edging! (I believe that I may have the 'sister' to this case in my stash. At least I hope I do!) The fabric for the bodice is a lovely pansy print that matched perfectly that I had left over from making my daughter's Easter dress when she was two and a half.
The pattern used was an old one that can still be found online: " Medora's Sundress and Jumper" by Beaucoup. I have used it many times before. It slips over the head easily and ties on the shoulders. It is cool and comfortable to wear in the summer heat.
I made a little tied bow headband using Little Lizard King's "Winnie Pinnie" pattern to go with it.
I hope you have a day filled with happiness!
