Pillowcase Rompers

I am loving the pillowcase style for my girls this summer! Above, Mary Ashley and Emma model pillowcase rompers made from a pattern from Etsy designer Whimsy Couture. You can find directions for making my grandmother's pillowcase dress pattern here.

And doesn't Emma look precious in her personalized headband? I'll share directions for this easy project tomorrow!

Good Morning Melissa, I do love these and the fact that you cansew them yourself in any kind of fabric you think suitable for the girls. My Compliments.
Have a wonderful day.Godeliva van Ariadone

What a neat twist to the pillowcase dresses! I've never seen these before! Thanks for sharing the site and can't wait to check out how to make headbands! You've caught me in one - the only - of my "creative" moods, Melissa! Thanks!

I plan to make a few for our granddaughters!

Hi Melissa,
Did you order the fabric online or find it locally?

Deanna said...

These pillowcase rompers are darling.
My daughter made one for her 2 year old daughter and it is so sweet.

Your pics are great.
Summer Blessings to you,

Tina, I found both the floral and microcheck fabrics at Beth's Heirloom Sewing, 860 Blake Road, in Wetumpka. Beth's carries a great selection of fabrics, patterns and notions, both for heirloom and casual sewing projects. Beth's also offers classes and will ship. Their phone number is 567-2448. They are open Wednesday through Friday, 10-6, and Saturdays, 9-1. There is a 25% off coupon in their current newsletter, so it might be worth it to you to sign up to receive it. If you and the twins ever want to make a trip to Wetumpka for fabric shopping, maybe we could meet for a picnic at Gold Star Park!

Hi Melissa

Gorgeous girls, gorgeous dresses.

The wire teapot was a wonderful find. It is such an eye catching piece and so versatile, as you could make it look so different depending on how you chose to fill it.
