The dress ties at the shoulders with ribbons, with a 4" ruffled hemline. Adorable matching pantaloons included, with a 4" ruffle at leg bottoms, and little sagey green bows are attached and removable for washing, at leg side seams.
Comfortable soft elastic waistband. All seams are professionally finished and ribbons are treated to prevent fraying. (Click Photos to Enlarge...pictures do not do this dress justice! The photo of the close up of fabric is closest to true look. Hard to photo white.)
This dress can fit sizes 18M - 2T - 3T. Dress is 17"L. Measure your child from her shoulder down to her leg the 17", and this will be how long it will be on her. The Waist of the pants can be adjusted for your childs waist at purchase.
Pillowcase dresses originally were worn at tea length and ankle length back in the early 1900's and 1800's, especially during and after civil war times when fabric was hard to come by and people used what ever they had for clothing. Hence the pillowcase dresses made from pillowcases or feedsacks. Now days vintage pillowcases are used, and in demand for their beauty of hand done crochet or tatted lace edgings, embroidered or cross stitch designs, and their vintage appeal. Many dresses are also made from todays fabrics and oh so cute.
The length has changed somewhat too. Tea length is still very popular, but as your child grows it can also be worn just below the knees, above the knees, thigh length, and used as a swing top with leggings, capris, jeans, pataloons or skirts.
A grow with me dress! Pillowcase dresses are just so very versatile they can be worn for 2 - 4 years adjusting to your childs growth. When she has outgrown it, tuck it away as an heirloom for the next generation to come!
Great for special portraits, parties, special occasions, church, picnics, birthdays, the beach, pageant wear, or just a day out with mom!
