Today, I wanted to show you how to make a super easy Vintage Pillowcase Halter dress using an oversized pillowcase and a little bit of elastic.
The dress is oh-so comfortable and best of all, it's machine washable with no ironing needed.
• An oversized pillowcase
• Tape measure
• Straight Pins
• 1/4" elastic (about 25-35" in length)
• Iron & Ironing board
• Seam Ripper (if you are as experienced as I am)
Measure your chest (above your breasts) and subtract 6". This will be the amount you will need of elastic. I needed 25" of elastic (now you know all of my secrets).
Once your elastic has been fed through the top hem, sew the two ends of the elastic together. Next, sew the opening closed in your top hem.
Sew your halter onto the center of your pillowcase (my center was at 9 1/2"), making sure not to sew onto the elastic, following the same seam line as before.
Slip on your dress, tie the belt and enjoy!
