Pillowcase Dresses




My love of sewing came from my grandmother. A couple of months ago, my Mom found a set of beautiful old pillowcases in the attic. I told her that I had some Nana's Heirloom Soak that I bought at a specialty fabric store in Houston when I was smocking a lot. It did a GREAT job at cleaning the old pillowcases.

....and my Grandmother did a GREAT job of making her great-granddaughters pillowcase dresses!
