I came across a red checkered pillowcase with a ruffled bottom when I was thrift shopping awhile ago. $1.00 price tag. It looked like it was for an XL pillow. I started conceiving Fourth of July outfits out of it. Then I came across a blue checkered pillowcase with a ruffled bottom. Price tag – $1.00.
It was meant to be. I decided on a skirt and shirt outfit instead of a dress. Warning…picture overload approaching!
I did the skirts with a simple covered elastic waistband. The shirts were fun because I got to try a new technique on them -shirring. I checked out this tutorial to aid in my learning and it was really easy.
All in all the girls love them and we are ready to celebrate Independence day!
