What are you most proud of? I love the fact that it is something that this baby can keep as an heirloom, not only for the dress factor, but that her great, great, grandmother embroidered the pillow case for her grandmother.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make certain that you have enough fabric in the pillow case. I had used the bottom (embroidered and crocheted edge) of one of the cases for the other project, but had enough of the rest of that case and the unused one for the entire dress. I carefully cut the crocheted edge off the remaining piece of the other pillow case and planned on using it on the sleeves, but it just didn't work out that way, so I sewed it on the front and back as trim. I used practically every inch of the pillow case. What little bit I have left, I may attempt to make some cute shoes to go with the dress.
