When you open your pillowcase up, this is what it should look like. If you cut your armhole on the wrong side (the center fold), you will have a large U-cut out of the middle of your pillowcase instead (it happens :)

Pillowcase Dress Tutorial
Simply Sh*bby Chic line at Target. You cannot purchase the cases separately there, but I find them on eb*y all the time. So, find a pretty pillowcase, wash and iron it. After it is ironed, take scissors and cut the very upper edge of the case off, the part where it is seamed together (opposite the opening for the case). I left the full length of the case for this dress. You can customize your length to fit a smaller child, or even to make a top for an older girl. Just determine how long you want the dress/top, from the back of the neck to the hem. Add 1 to 1 1/2 inches (depending on your casing width) and cut your pillowcase to that length.
