As part of our Sweet Sundays Quilters church group, we are making Dresses for Africa. The idea is to use up old pillowcases for these dresses however, I don't have any.
The instructions we used can be found on Nancy's Notions website and the link to those instructions are here. They are easy to make and a great way to use up extra fabric. The only thing needed besides the fabric (or pillowcase) is some elastic and binding. Since I make all my own binding, I only had to worry about making sure I had the elastic on hand. So for little investment, these dresses are quite easy yet rewarding to make.
Others in the group used some vintage, embroidered pillowcases and they are gorgeous.
