just adorable!

How did you do the armholes? I usually use bias tape, just wondering what you did?

I just folded it over twice, i was thinking about useing bias tape but im no good at that. I went to walamrt and bought 4 more yards of fabric to make more and 2 of my friends bought some so i could make some for there girls lol!!!!

Here are the directions i followed

except for the armholes i didnt use the extra fabric im going to make the armholes a little bigger then what it said to (just a little bit) ill let yall see more pics when those are done!!!
If you also look on ebay you can find alot of great ideas for pillowcase dresses!!
