Project Yesu: Pillowcase Dresses

This month I will be making and sewing several pillowcase dresses.  I am donating them to Project Yesu.  They are collecting dresses to take to Uganda.  For more information on Project Yesu click the link above.  They will be collecting until the end of May.   

I used the pillowcase dress tutorial and pattern from sewlikemymom.com.  She uses the sizing guides below.

I sewed this dress using the size 6.  I used fabric and ribbon from my stock pile.  I don't think this picture does it justice.  Let's try again ......
......that's much better.  Willow is 3 and the size 6 dress is a little big but you get the idea.  

Say Cheese!
Look at the camera!
Smile really big!
I said "look at the flowers" not" pick the flowers."
One more time, give me a really big smile.
Last one, look at the camera and smile.
 So much for cooperation!  (love this girl)  I hope you all will consider donating a few dresses too.


  1. That's a great cause! Every little girl wants pretty clothes. This style is great for Uganda, those girls will be able to wear their dresses until they're shirts!

    Pillowcases always look cuter with a model! Yours turned out fab, as usual!
