The Pillowcase Dress

The Pattern/Tutorial trend is a wonderful thing because it  is not just a set of measurements and pattern pieces.  In most cases they provide extremely detailed step-by-step instructions - WITH PICTURES!

One rainy day I found The Betsy Dress  on Etsy and within hours I was whipping out my own dresses! 

Master the basic dress and then you can do just about anything....

I found this great applique design at Trendy Stitches , added a ruffle and people are just going crazy for this dress. 

With a long sleeved T-shirt and a pair of leggings and these little dresses can be worn all year.  Add a few inches to the length and it's a nightgown...the possibilities are limitless.

Double Ruffle Knot Dress

LOVE this pattern from Little Lizard King!  The only downside is that I can't "French Seam" my way through it...going to have to learn to use the serger.

*Just to be clear- a serger is not required for this pattern, it helps, but not required.
