Featured in 'Threading My Way'

WooHoo! The pillowcase dress I made for another niece of mine last Christmas has been featured in Threading my Way's Threading your way - Dresses for Girls Link Party. 

Never in my life did I imagine that I would be making dresses although I love handmades. I do a lot of quilting (mostly small ones) and landscape wallhangings. Sewing a dress was the farthest thing in my mind until I started Dress A Girl Around the World - Dress A Girl Sydney & Australia in April 2011. I had to learn how to make a pillowcase dress. Lucky me it was only for a pillowcase dress to dress the less fortunate girls around the world. But lately I have been getting bolder in my sewing projects and soon I may make my own party skirt to wear to another niece of mine who is celebrating her 21st birthday in March but this would all depend on whether I have the time or not. But we will never know.

Here is the dress I made that was featured. It seems like a dwarf when it is displayed side by side with the other really good dresses sewn by the other crafters....but I made it with my own hands and am proud of it and my niece is walking tall wearing it. :-)
Thank you so much to Pam of Threading my Way for featuring my dress.


  1. My pleasure... your dress stands proud with the other dresses!!! Look forward to seeing your party skirt.

  2. Gigi your dresses are great. Mostly I sew on some lace which is much easier than pockets and ruffles for me. Keep up the good work.

  3. Thanks, Pam! Yes, I really want to make it that's why am finishing off all the small items that I have committed to complete so I can start making the skirt.
