Hand-dyed Pillowcase dresses




 This is the second super fancy pillowcase dress that I have made.  The first was sold to a mother at an Alberta Street Fair in Portland Oregon. Most of the other pillowcase dress have been bought by petite women and worn as more of a shirt dress.  One of my favorite things to do with old linens is hand-dye them and embellish dresses and skirts.  This is one of the easiest ways to make a bustle.  I use two different sized linen napkins and added lace.  I have been saving these materials for over three years and finally pulled them out on one of those days you just want to make something pretty.
