    Saw part of Sewing with Nancy segment and her guest?, showed pictures of pillowcase dresses and am looking for
    pattern.
    I guess each end at the seams are scooped out and sewn with long bias tape in order to go over shoulders and tie. In between taped arm hole scoops the material was gathered with elastic. At the bottom of the case, there were a row or two of ruffles (probably so they could be let down as the child grew).

    Also important, they had patch pockets. Does anyone one have more information or know who to contact as I do not
    do clothing but am willing to try pillowcase dresses as have
    SO much old calico to use up. Thank you. Cindy

    If you go to Nancysnotions.com her website has a link at the bottom of the page for her Creative Kindness section and this will take you to the dresses for Africans and the pattern is in there along with many colorful pictures.

    There is also a big need right now for pillowcase dresses for the Haiti orphans. Here's the discussion:
