At our church, girls from age 11 on up to women age 87 made these pillowcase dresses for a humanitarian project. They are easily made using a pillowcase, some 1/4 ” elastic and double fold bias tape. The 2 that I made (pictured above) were just made out of some fabric I had in my fabric stash, not actual pillowcases.
The instructions they gave us came from this blog. It has a great tutorial.
Our goal was to make 100.
When it was all said and done, our group had made over 200 dresses to go to Africa. A family in our neighborhood was going to visit Kenya, so they were able to deliver the dresses personally.
Here is a website explaining the project.
