Pretty in a PillowCase

At 9:00 last night I was doing laundry. I was putting away a plain white pillowcase when I remembered a tutorial I saw about a pillowcase dress. Instead of finishing the laundry, or doing anything else I was suppossed to do last night, I busted out the sewing machine and made this.
This is ABSOLUTELY the first thing (besides one simple blanket), that I have EVER sewn. I am pretty proud of myself. It took me till 1am (LOL), and it is FAR FAR FAR from perfect, but it definitely works.

I added a cute material flower, which you can find the tutorial for here.

And this morning, the first thing we did before breakfast, was a fashion show!! Berkely loved it.
Sorry about the messy table, I didn't even think about cleaning it all up last night.

NO JOKE, if I can do this, ANYONE CAN!!!! I am heading to the thrift store sometime to find some vintage type pillowcases, with lace on the bottom, to fiddle around some more.
Tutorials for the dress found here, and here.
