My friend, who owns a resale shop, originally gave me a few vintage pillowcases to make skirts, but in a depressive, oh-my-God-what-am-I-doing-with-my-life sinkhole, I thought that a fun, totally self-indulgent project could perk me up. So I made a pillowcase dress instead. I patterned the pillowcase base from something I already own, so it fits like a glove. I added gussets, a pocket, and the ruffles and elastic sash you see here. There were a lot of happy accidents - aren't there always? - and I love how it turned out. There are still imperfections, of course - the back has some funky puckers - but it's not bad for my second clothing creation.
