My June Quick-sew
My great niece had a birthday in June - her sixth! She developed her own sense of style by age four, so it can be challenging to create for her. Her favorite thing to wear is dresses and she loves a lot of bright, vivid color. She does not like things scratchy against her skin. Enter this version of the pillowcase dress from The Purl Bee. There are no raw seams; not even a surged seam. Here is the result in a wonderful seersucker fabric purchased at JoAnn's, on sale of course! I used only 3/4 of a yard of fabric and about 2 1/2 yards (or less) of ribbon.
The dress is a bit long right now, but a quick hand stitched hem that can be removed as she grows will fix it.
