Pillowcase To Pale Vintage Love!!!

Well ladies and gents, the little one is growing too fast, leaving her dress selection looking pretty slim these days. Time for a date with my sewing machine.  I hit the local thrift stores for some  inspiration and material, and oh did I find inspiration. I snatched up this lacy light pink pillowcase that was beautiful, and only $2.  The lace alone is worth so much more than $2, seriously, lace is expensive.  I decided that the color and lace would be perfect for a nice vintage frock.  I took the pillowcase home and that night put this dress together for a wedding the next day.  Hope you enjoy it:) I know I loved making this one:  Plus doesn't my little one look adorable?
