My first Itty Bitty Baby Dress

I bought this cute pillowcase a while back, but it had just been languishing away in my fabric bin. I decided to try out the FREE Made by Rae pattern for an Itty Bitty Baby Dress. Because I used a pillowcase, I was able to use the existing hem for the skirt. I decided to skip the piping because it scared me a little bit, having never used it before.

I made the flower using this tutorial from SewRitzyTitzy. I just did 5 petals, and then sewed it on to the dress along with two buttons stacked on top of each other.

Hi Sadie thanks for your links for an upholstered headboard. Those are great too but I have my heart set on an upholstered bed not just the headboard and I want it about 70" tall and I love how it wraps around the sides. I don't know if I'll find it cheaper but I'm determined to try!
By the way super cute dress!!

It's very cute. I love making new things from something else. I'm all for no hemming.
