a pillowcase! The concept is a really simple one, and I followed the basic guidelines on Sweet Verbena’s tutorial for a similar shirt. All you have to do is a bit of cutting and hemming, and then pull a ribbon through the top. Voila! I had initially planned to make this into a shirt, but it was definitely long enough for a dress, and that made me happy, since dresses are my entire wardrobe for this sultry summer.
This is my pillowcase conqueror face! I have been wanting to make this dress for such a long time, but it’s hard to get to the sewing machine during the week. When I started this project on Saturday, I didn’t know I’d be ready to wear it the next day. Success! Now, of course, I did have a few seams to rip out along the way, but it’s finished, and I’m proud!
We had a relaxing weekend at home, and Sunday marked four years that Eric and I have been together. We celebrated with a dip in the pool, frozen yogurt, and a browse through a bookstore. Everything is more fun when he is with me, and I’m glad we make such a good team. Here’s to four more years!
