Healing and prayer room M-Sa 10-12 Pst

On July 24th I did a pillowcase dress making event at our church. While we were there and brainstorming we came up with a new pattern to use. Below is what we came up with.


Pillow Case Dress Pattern-Sewn on straps version

Lay pillowcase on cutting board. Cut off 2” from the top. This will be the sewn on straps. Cut straps in two and cut off ends. Set aside.










Cut a 4” x 4” “J” on the sides for arm holes.












Turn down top ½ inch and then another ½ inch to conceal raw edges. Press.











Cut two 7” pieces of ¼ or ½ inch elastic
Sew casing leaving open to pull the 7” elastic through.









Sew on bias tape covering the arm holes.











Lay the cut 2” pieces flat and iron. Fold all raw edges in ¼ inch.















Fold ends of straps over raw edges of bias tape at arm holes from front to back of dress. Sew edges and side seams together. Finish with a an “X” at the ends to secure the strap to the dress.










The finished project:
