Pillowcase Sundresses!!

I have pretty much finished the 3 pillowcase sundresses I made for my nieces! I think they came out super cute! The fabric dye worked much better than I thought it was going to.
The first two pictures are of the cupcake "patches" I made, on the biggest sundress. So my process - first I dyed the fabric, then I cut and sewed everything, attached all the patches and straps, finished!
This is my oldest niece's sundress. I attached more cupcake "patches" for her sundress, since she's very tall. I wanted to balance the length out just a little bit. She hasn't tried it on yet, or even seen it. So, it might be way too huge, since she's tall and very thin. Typical 7 year old little girl. But she's awesome! =] Hopefully it fits her and she likes it.
This sundress is for my 2 year old niece. She tried her's on and LOVED IT! It's a bit too big for her, so I'm going to pull in the back a little bit and see if that helps. Her mom also said that she could wear a little t-shirt underneath and it wouldn't look so big. I made these sundresses for playing outside, especially when it gets VERY hot outside. And they seem to be perfect for that so far.
And then this one is for my baby niece! She's about 3 1/2, almost 4 months old. I used the purple pillowcase, since it's a little bit softer and the purple is a little different. It fit her very well! I tried my hand at making baby bloomers, but they were a bit too small. I haven't decided yet if I want to try to make another pair of bloomers. But I think they all came out super cute!! Next, I'm working on making some extra throw pillows for our living room out of an old blanket. We only have one throw pillow, and it's kinda on it's last leg. Or last seam, I should say. After the pillows, I'm thinking of making my self a simple circle skirt out of an old sheet and some green fabric dye. Happy Crafting!! =]
