pillowcase shirt

I used this tutorial to make this darling shirt out of a pillowcase.

I've never sewn with elastic thread before, so I faced lots of challenges along the way. Just before giving up, I found this site with great tips on shirring fabric. As it turns out, my length and width settings were off.

Wow - I love that! Just think of all the possibilities! You could be shopping for a shirt and bed linens AT THE SAME TIME!!

Oh, you made one! Way to go, it's beautiful.

I've been contemplating making one for several weeks but haven't quite worked up the confidence. Elastic thread is new to me too. I'll have to check out the site that was helpful to you.
