You can, quite literally, make this easy-to-sew childrens pillowcase dress sewing pattern from a pillowcase! You need minimal fabric to whip up this very quick sew! Plus it has the option to tie bows on both shoulders or just one.

The Emily Dress is an excellent scrap buster with a cute ruffle along the bottom and ribbon bows on the shoulder. This sewing pattern is a wonderful up-cycling project to breathe new life into spare pillowcases! It also has plenty of room for embroidery, appliqué, or decoration such as ribbon, ruffles, bows, buttons, or any other extra extras you might like!

All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing which means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight so there is no fraying fabric for little hands to pick at!

    I have seen these around but never tried making one. After printing out and cutting out it took roughly an hour to make, first time I’ve started and finished something in a day 🙂 . I was pleased with my efforts but must admit to not reading the instructions and doing it the way my head told me. I found it very easy and straight forward. will I make it again, yes definitely. The options are good for changing the look. I made it so the ribbon tied at just one side as it is for a young baby (4 months). For older children ties both sides will look good, pockets can be added and lace trimming too. Very easy for beginners as straight forward.
