Remember this? It’s the pillowcase I bought from the Sally Army for about 30p the other day.
I decided to use this tutorial from SewMamaSew as a base. Normally I don’t bother with a pattern, but I was a bit tired for original brainthoughts and couldn’t mess up that fabric. I made a few adjustments, mostly because a pillowcase is just not wide enough for that many pleats.
Apart from changing the pleats, I added slits tunic style to the hem (to accommodate my huge hips, damn the lack of width in a pillowcase!) and made the straps cross-over at the back. I also eliminated the ruffles because I’m not that much of a girlygirl :)
Here are some close-ups :
