A handmade dress & matching card

A gift for a little girl; a pillowcase dress with matching card made from scraps of the same fabric.

The pretty pink pillowcase, $1 from Savers. I used the bottom 'hem' of the pillowcase, and used a size 1 dress (that I unstitched) as a template to cut around. Rather than sewing a drawstring neck, I cut straps from white ribbon - scraps I found in my local op shop, and stitched to the inside of the neckline. I always pick up little sewing gems from my local op shop haberdashery box!

A matching card, using the same pillowcase fabric and some lace from my sewing box, machine stitched to a blank card.
