I'm back to sewing Pillowcase dresses for the summer. I love to try some of the new techniques I find in other sewing blogs. My latest interest has been in making dresses with large Bow Sashes. I have 5 dresses cut out and two completed, so far. Every dress has to be unique so I can have the satisfaction of being creative !!
I like the look of contrast fabric bows, so I made a series of large sashes in pastel print colors; then I chose the pillowcases from my stash. I had 5 cases in King Size that had plenty of material and were nice and slim (no baggy arm openings). I was able to prepare arm openings for sizes 6-7 so the decorations needed to be a little more "grown up". Here are the photos of the first two completed dresses:
