Awesome dress from retro pillowcase

This is a 30 min dress from a pillowcase. The creator found a tutorial from 1992 that she’d once tried to talk her mum into letting her make with no luck, and decided to have another go two decades later.

Now here is my challenge: Can I make a version of this dress following fundamentally the same pattern and have it (1) Not look like a pillowcase (2) be a dress a 33-year-old, not a 15-year-old will want to wear (3) prove my mom wrong?

And so she did. I’m officially impressed like hell:

  • Hello world

    My name is Malin. That's like marlin without the R.

    I used to live on a boat on stilts in an Amsterdam canal with my bearded boyfriend and a nesting duck.

    Then I brought the Beard to Stockholm, and eight months later he brought me over to the UK.

    I like breaking and making things.

    I have a little tumblr where I collect random things that catch my attention on the intrawebz.
