Flower Girl Pillowcase Dresses

I'm so in love with these toddler pillowcase dresses I made for my friend's wedding!  The fabric really makes the dress.  It is such a beautiful lace fabric.  The lighting in these pictures doesn't do justice to the real color, which is a beautiful and rich brown.  I followed this wonderful tutorial, Baby Rabies Pillowcase Dress Tutorial.  I made an under-dress out of speckled cotton so the dress wouldn't be see through, which is sewn to the lace overlay at the neck and arms.  I sewed on the bottom hem's lace before sewing the body into a tube.  I also made my own bias tape out of the lace to line the arm and serged the inside seams for a finished look.
