A few of us have seen a great idea for "pillow case dresses." These are easy (and affordable) to make. Perhaps some of you would like to make some of these dresses for us to take to Ethiopia? Can you imagine the joy a little girl would feel to be able to pick out and OWN, a brand-new dress???
A google search yielded lots of "recipes" for these dresses. Here are a few sites that look pretty good to me:
- Site #1 (you can click to get a pdf instruction sheet).
- Site #2 (includes lengths for girls up to 8-9 years old)
- Site #3 (includes tips for cute embellishments and etc.)
Here are photos of these darling dresses. They are so cute!
- On a related note, here is a pattern for a little "bandana dress"--very cute, too!
Who wants to sew some dresses?
