Patriotic Peep Pillow Case Dress
I absolutely love Laura Kelly’s Patriotic Peeps Fabric, available at JoAnn Stores.
I made a child’s size 4 Pillow Case Dress. Since I don’t have girls, I was able to get my super cute little neighbor to be my model,
with a little bribery of not one, but two pieces of candy!!!!

Coats & Clark thread
Simplicity pillow case dress pattern (I only used this for the measurements.)
Fiskars Rotary cutter, mat, and ruler
Pure Color Red Grosgrain Ribbon
When I started this project, I used the Simplicity pattern to basically get the measurements for the dress. I needed two squares, so I doubled the fabric and cut two at one time. I then cut a quarter of a circle out of the top corner of the folded material. This was for the arms. I then unfolded the fabric, placed the two right sides together and sewed up the sides.
After I was done with the gathering, I sewed a line right below my crochet/zigzag, so that my gathering stayed in place.
I then sewed it to the bottom of my dress.
