Since my Halloween polka dotted pillowcase dress was such a hit, I decided to make one for Christmas. And guess what? I sewed it all by myself! I know..crazy, right! Yay… Sewing is kinda difficult for me so I’m proud!
I had this pattern and used it only for the initial large cut for the curved arm holes.
For the main larger cuts..fold your fabric “box” in half and then cut the arms so they are even. Do that part twice.
Bias tape is too advanced for me, so I did this the cheater way. Fold 1/4 inch and iron.
Fold the top part of the dress down about an inch, iron, and sew. This is where the ribbon will go.
I turned some $5 Target woman’s knew socks to leggings. Read my post here on how I do that.
Thread your ribbon and there ya go!! ( I use a pencil).
My little one wore it today and I was able to take a few pics by our tree…She is very excited for Christmas and I think she’ll be wearing it for her preschool Christmas program next week. She is the cutest little thing and sings 5 times louder than the rest of the bunch…It’s so hard not to giggle 🙂
Reminds me of this…
