They all look great! Did you use a pattern for the pillowcase dress(first one)? That is exactly the dress I have been looking for a pattern for!

yeah that but i read already that you don't "do" patterns...perfect...neither do i! but can you explain how you cut the pillowcase to have sleeves like that? it's exactly what i want for dd but i'm having a really hard time envisioning it. thanks and they look awesome! you should totally make yourself a shirt to match your dd's!

I used this tutorial to know how to sew the peasant top part and then just dd's measurements to turn it into a dress. It's my favorite and was sewn from start to finish in about 30min!

LOL. Let me corrct myself. I LOVE tutorials, but I hate comercial patterns. don't know why? I love tweeking tutorials to what fits me. I know same can be done with a pattern, but I'm all about free tute's on the web, kwim?

As for the pillow case and how to cut it.....

I measured dd (2.5yo) from sholder to where I wanted the dress to fall (including seam allowance).= 19"

I measured the 19" on the pillow case from bottom to top (to be sure to get the embroidary). That left a good 12+" or so at the top that I cut off that hadn't been used to cut my sleeves out of.

I folded the dress portion in half and cut a dress shape (half cone). Being sure that the top width still measured 22" (DD's cheast measurement with seam allowance)

Then, I followed the tutorial part on how to sew the neck and sleeves into the peasant style top. It really was very easy.

I hope this made since?
