Default Re: Pillow case dresses - 2 ways??

I bought the Parksbird patterns http://www.parksbird.com. She has a group of patterns for like $8 and it is included in there. That specific group has pillow case dress, bloomers, ribbon socks, twirly skirt, bandana pants, how to add bandanas to skirts and t-shirts for dresses, overalls, bandana dresses. It has a ton of great patterns. I am VERY new at sewing and I could even follow it. Lots of pictures and great tips.

I haven't tried the other way, but I worry about the ribbons forever coming untied and the dress falling off. It is also good, because there is give so no choking hazard.

I think I am going try lining my dresses though. I think it would make for a much cleaner look. Do you line the whole dress or just the top (hope that makes sense)?

Thanks for the info on the elastic, I think that I will try it. I line the whole dress.
