Pillow case dress Refashion tutorial

Hi friends how are you all ,today i will show you how to reshape a simple pillow case dress into a cute ruffly frock

Well the story starts from the day when i made a long pillow case dress for my elder daughter but she some how didnt like it a bit and totaly refused to wear it :(
so i asked her that can this be given to her younger sis and she gladly agreed now the dress was pretty long for the younger one so i decided to do some thing interesting with it thats how i cut it

remember that its a prepared dress with a back so i am showing you the cutting from the front and we aill automatically get the back parts

the shourlder ruffles pieces are trimmed to have a scalloped shape

The neck line is prepared by using a bias tape and shulder ruffels are attached to the body and the lower skirt is pleated and attached to the prepared body .

thats it all done now i just added a big ribbon bow in the center of the body

mommy makes me soooooo mad with her camera at me :)

Now thats better mood :)

the back

fun with sis and cousins :)

BUT! the story does not end hear now my elder dauter is also in love with the transformed look of previously" her" pillow case dress and wants it back :( but now its too short for her .......(KIDS) .......... ! any how the fight got resolved on my promise to her that i will make a dress just like this for her in her choice of fabric and every one is happy :)
