Pillowcase Smock Tops



Well I have been meaning to make something wintery for my daughter out of my huge stash of vintage pillowcases for quite some time, but she is size 4 & pants are a bit harder to do (you need 2 pillowcases the same!), so I have finally made some smock style tops. This one is a 3/4 sleeve, but I have been madly cutting out long sleeves. They are so easy to make & comfy!! I may even lengthen them into little smock dresses. I need to learn to crochet - just for flowers as I think they really add a bit of sweetness to the top.
