Dress a Girl Around the World Sew a Long

LBG studio
I found this sew a long at lbg studio last week. I've been meaning to make some pillowcase dresses for awhile now and this was for a GREAT cause so I dove right in. Dresses are for Dress a Girl Around the World. So I made these 3 dresses. All from 25 cent pillowcases from the Thrift Store. In the sew-a-long there is a tutorial to make these dresses from pillowcases (like I did) or to make them out of fabric. She also has lots of fun variations to dress them up a bit. These were SO easy to make and SO quick! My favorite one! Gray striped pillowcase, red bias tape, and elephant applique with red button eye detail.
Details of the dress.
Second dress has tiny blue and red flowers all over. I added a pocket for some fun.
Third dress is a vintage pillowcase covered in blue flowers and green leaves. I made the blue bias tape. Took more time for sure to make it, but worth it. Very sweet.


This was so much fun, I'm excited to have done it. Now every time I hit the thrift store I'll be looking for fun pillowcases to make more. I actually still have more and might make a few.... These babies will be sent to Arizona to dress girls all over the world!
