As you know my friend Lindsay is having a baby girl. So far, all of my friends have had little boys. For this little baby, due to arrive in a few short weeks I made these onesie dresses. I give all credit to this excellent tutorial from Stephanie of Barefoot in the Kitchen.
For fabric I was kind of stumped. I had a vision of what I wanted and I don't like much of the fabric in stores right now. I didn't want to order something expensive online and wait, so I decided to go vintage. I found these beautiful, durable and awesome (to me) pillowcases at the best thrift store around. After a wash in really hot water they were ready.
What makes pillowcases perfect for this project besides the ideal size, is that they have awesome prints and sometimes beautiful, finished edges. Thank you Montgomery Ward for making such pretty pillowcases in the 1970s. I appreciate it.
Because of the excellent tutorial, these dresses are pretty easy to make. That leaves room for creativity. I might of added a flower like Stephanie did, but decided to keep these dresses pretty simple this go round. I loved adding pleated ruffles for the hems.
