Default Re: would this be similar to the pillowcase dress?

I am sure you could buy that and either make the dress out of it very easily or cut the top part off and use it for the smocking. I think at Walmart it was $7 a yard and that was 50% off.

I have seen this, my mom actually got some last year after season for like $2 a yard, I didn't realize what it was but the print looks like something that should be on patio furniture....although I would never tell mom that...
