Does anyone know just how hard it is to get 3 girls to jump at the same time without any one of them looking ridiculous? If you’ve seen a copy of Sew Hip 3 you may have noticed the pillowcase dresses in there, with 3 daughters of our staff jumping around in wellies and dresses. We had such a hysterical time trying to get them all to jump at the same time as having all 3 of them (and the dresses) look amazing. I think we pulled it off in the end, but not without a huge number of out-takes!
These pillowcase dresses are a great way to experiment with sewing. They are so simple to make and can be customised to suit you and your child. My eldest daughter lives in them over the summer months, they are great to wear on their own or layer over a swimming costume or T shirt. You don’t have to use a pillowcase either, just use any fabric that is about the same size as a pillowcase. That will mean more cutting and stitching but the end result will be the same.
We’re setting up a flickr group for any Sew Hip projects that you make, we’d love to see photos of your little ones jumping in their pillowcase dresses!
