My daughter Maddie just had a cupcake bakery themed party to celebrate her 5th birthday. I really am not great at sewing, but I can handle a few straight seams. I found some cute cupcake fabric at Walmart, but they only had small squares of it available. I decided to try a simple pillowcase dress, and went searching for instructions on-line. I came across The Mother Huddle, including a great sizing chart. Her instructions are really great and easy to follow. If I can do it, you can do it. I had to cheat the sizing slightly, since the pieces of cupcake fabric weren’t quite wide enough, but it still turned out really well, and just wasn’t as full as the pattern called for.
I used a sweet polka dot fabric at the bottom, and a polka dot ribbon to match. The dress isn’t perfect, but Maddie loved it, and that was what was important. 😉 It was a cool day so we paired it with white capri leggings and a white t-shirt underneath. What a cutie, and sweet as a cupcake too. With a new party dress, life really is a party! More party details to come.
