Fat Quarters Make Gorgeous Pillow Case Dresses

Like many people who sew or craft, I am attracted to fat quarters much the same way a moth is to a flame--especially a moth who spends way too much money on things they have little purpose for.  After all, a fat quarter is not a lot of fabric. It's almost impossible to come up with a clothing item made with a fat quarter.  Nevertheless, they are very attractive, cute, whimsical, gorgeous and I like to buy them and stick them in my fabric stash.
But, last week, I decided to try and make a pillow case dress utilizing a very cute fat quarter that my husband got me for Christmas last year when he bought my sewing machine.  If you follow my blog then you know I have a plethora of satin fabric. I used the satin to make up for the short-comings in length for the fat quarter and for the back of the dress.  The result is a super-cute pillow case dress and one less fat quarter in the closet.
