Today I was looking for some ideas for Pinky’s first birthday dress. I really want to make one for her and I found these 2 tutorials that include patterns! The first is the pillowcase dress, so simple and so adorable! LBG Studio has graciously posted her sewing patterns and this dress can easily be shortened or lengthened. You can get the full pillow case dress tutorial and pattern here.

Now for the second dress tutorial I found, The Shirt Dress. Have a bunch of old men’s dress shirts? Upcycle them! What a great way to reuse a Mens Dress shirt and turn it into a precious dress. It’s modern, fun and so chic! Dana Made It put together a very simple tutorial and in 2-3 hours you can make this dress yourself! View the full shirt dress tutorial here.

I think I’m going to make the pillow case dress for Pinky’s birthday! I’m very excited to choose the fabric pattern and get started. Her birthday is less than 4 months away now (WOW, I can’t believe how fast time is going) and with the rate I go with craft projects I better get started! 🙂
