Well...no one is getting married, but this post IS about a white dress. Most of you know my love for pillow case dresses. Friday, we had family pictures taken and I wanted Sophie to wear a white dress. She didn't have one, so I decided to make one for her. Now ya'll know, I have made a ton of pillowcase dresses, but I've never made one from an actual pillow case before. That is up until now! A few weeks ago, my sweet Grandma gave me two BEAUTIFUL, handmade, pillowcases which she received as a wedding gift years ago.
Oh, they are so pretty and still in PERFECT condition. Each case has two lovely hearts on the bottom and the hearts are trimmed in delicate blue lace. I knew the minute I laid eyes on them that they would make the perfect dress for my girl.
The dress literally took all of about 10 minutes to put together. It was so...easy, but came out beautifully. Sophie wore it for our family pictures taken on Friday. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to snap a picture of her in it then, but I did take this one of her at church yesterday morning. We had to be there early because Shane had a meeting before church.
I took these pictures as we waited in one of the classrooms. Not the best pic I know, but I hope the professional ones we had done will do the dress much more justice. Can't wait to share those with you!
Happy Monday Everyone!
