{Made by PH} Fly Away with the Balloons dress

I made a pillowcase dress using this beautiful Sarah Jane Children at Play Balloons Aqua about a year back, when I just learnt sewing and pillowcase dress is one of the simplest pattern to make. 

Well, I got bored of the dress design but I still love this beautiful print, who could resist pretty little girl and white rabbit flying away with the colorful balloons? It's like wearing a piece of a  children fairy tale on you. So I decided to refashion it by giving it butterfly sleeves. 

Isn't it beautiful? :)

The butterfly sleeves (I just decided to name it as such!) is a random design that combines satin ribbon and plain pinkish cotton. I thought its best to keep the sleeves plain and simple, don't steal the limelight from the print on the bodice.

Little matching brooch with the left over fabric and ribbons.

This is the original dress I made for my little bunny. Just FYI, pillowcase is one of the simplest design suitable for beginner, give it a try if you have any unwanted pillowcase or just half a yard of fabric. 

So remember, the next time you got bored of your old design, don't let them rot in the wardrobe, just refashion them.  ;)

Interested with the fabric by Sarah Jane? Check it out here from (yes I ordered mine from online fabric stores, designer fabric doesn't come cheap but they are so worth it)
