Aw… thank you ever so much for posting this, Sarai! :) It was another fantastic pattern to work with! I am definitely thinking of making another later in the season–I wore this yesterday and got a ton of compliments on the style of the dress!

This lady just continually amazes me.

I Know! I saw this dress yesterday and loved it… and then stared at my computer agape when I read that she made it from pillowcases. It takes a real talent to see a flower print pillowcase in a thrift store and see its real potential. Inspirational, Casey!

Oh my gosh. It really suits a flower print, doesn’t it?

Pretty dress…the trim on the hem was a brilliant idea.

Absolutely beautiful! Can’t believe it’s made out of pillowcases. What a brilliant way to refashion something old into something new and have it look totally fresh. Lovely work, Casey!
