Custom Pillowcase Dresses

A few weeks ago, I posted about some fun I had making bows to coordinate with a dress project. Today, I’d like to share a classic custom item with you: Pillowcase Dresses for little girls!

Available as a custom order, I’ll work with you to find a fabric, theme, or color scheme for your little girls dress, then create it in her size.  These loose dresses will get plenty of wear: alone as a sundress, or in other seasons layered with a short or long sleeved shirt, not to mention first as a dress and later as a peasant top.

As an example of possible themes, take a gander at this Army themed dress.  Red and White ribbon accentuate the patriotic theme, while a full ruffle along the bottom keeps things fun.

Maybe you’d like something special to commemorate and remind your little one of an upcoming special vacation? Then something like this special Mickey Mouse dress might be just the thing!  Cut on the bias for extra movement, it has not only a ruffle along the hem, but a flirty one across the neckline as well.  Add some fun bows and this look is a hit in and out of the theme park!

These are just some ideas of the limitless themes available in this style of dress.  If you’d like to collaborate with me on something for your favorite girl or two, please fill out the form under the contact tab or email me at susie@freerosestudio.com.  Prices start at $22, and will vary depending on fabric choice, size, number of ruffles and added accessories.

Want some instant gratification, with vintage bonus points? Snag this ready-made pillowcase dress, crafted from a vintage crocheted hem pillowcase.  Not just for little girls, this would make a great summer top on a woman too!

Let’s hear it for the boys!

This will be a quick post, but I am just so excited to share this batch of one size PUL diaper covers I finished for all the little boys out there!!!

I suppose they are really pretty gender neutral, but as a mommy to a little boy I know how tough it can be to find them fun things. Plus, these are perfect for spring and summer outfits!  So-here you go fellow mama’s!

From left to right:

Royal Blue  with Black FOE and black with white snaps

Light Blue with Yellow FOE and green snaps

Royal Blue with Brown FOE and brown with white snaps

Yellow with Yellow FOE and green with white snaps

They will be appearing on Etsy later this week, but I wanted to give my readers a chance at them first.  Make one yours for just $15 plus shipping by using the form under the Contact tab, or emailing me at Susie@FreeRoseStudio.com

Lots of Bows!!!!

Being a Mommy of a little boy, my quick accessory projects are limited.  Sure, I can make him cute hats and ties, but nothing that can be done with a few supplies in a few short minutes.

So, when a client asked me to make some hair bows to match the dresses I had crafted for her, I became way too excited and jumped right in!!  I gathered up some ribbon, searched the web for some ideas, and got to….bow-ing?

I found a great website with lots of ideas in varying levels of difficulty. If you’d like to make some bows of your own, check out www.girlythingsbows.com. I recommend having some Fabric-Tac glue on hand, and some old pins to hold the ribbon in place while the glue sets.

In no time at all, I whipped up these fun bows! Check back, my next post will be covering the dresses these coordinate with.  If you do make some bows, I’d love it if you shared pictures of your finished project with me!
