The Pillow Case Dress... Without the Pillowcase!!

Did you sleep ill last night -- tossing and turning over my big project reveal today?!? hehe no doubt ;)
Well, without further ado, here it is!
Yep you guessed it, it's an Easter frock for little Fern. And I added the little pocket rabbit during her 4.5minute naptime this morning. That's why one ear is ludicrously shorter than the other. No time for take #2.

The design is loosely based on a pillowcase dress, though I didn't have a suitable pillowcase, so I guess it isn't a pillowcase dress at all! Fern will model this dress on Easter, or possibly all of next week because let's face it, she probably won't wear it afterward!

What do you think??

ps. I have crafty projects coming out of my ears at the mo - this afternoon I raided the op shops and found some great vintage buttons for an artwork, we're making a whole stack of rabbit softies for the bubs in our mother's group for our Easter soiree, plus there are those damn chocolate Easter eggs I am committed to making. Not to mention painting my bedroom feature wall, and have I even mentioned I need to create a nursery at some point?? I am almost halfway through this pregnancy and am beginning to panic! Where will I find the time??


  1. I LOVE IT...and Im laughing at the same time because how on earth could I guess that what you were going to make was a Teepee...ahhh..hello..I think someone needs more a wally!
    Seeing all these fab sewing projects makes me want to do a sewing course and get creative! Little Fern is very lucky to have a very creative mummy! x

  2. Oh I love it! Yip, I'm a wally too...thinking it was a quilt, how daft of me! It looks so well done. Love the bunny softie too!

  3. I love the dress, it looks so cute! Fern has a very talented mummy, was it hard to make?

  4. hey, love the dress and isn't fern such a lucky little girl having such a beautiful bedroom, maybe thats why she likes to wake at night.......she can't believe her luck at all the beautiful things to come out and play with...hehehe:) i've pinched the 'linkwithin' widget idea from you, it's great isn't it? so thanks so much for commenting on my blog or i wouldn't have found yours and the widget. have a fab weekend, i'm off on a stitch and bitch weekend, can't wait :))))

  5. Love the dress. It is so sweet, you are very talented.

  6. Gorgeous little dress - was it hard to make? I have some pillowcase dress patterns bookmarked in the hope that one day I'll make one for Grace but my sewing capabilities are pretty basic. Can't wait to see a photo of Fern in her lovely dress x
