Q&A with Baimei

Hello there - love your pattern of the pillowcase dress and would love to make it for my grand-daughter. However, when I go to your pattern site it is not in English. Are you able to send me this pattern in English. Many thanks. Jean Email: belleslettres@iinet.net.au
Baimei answered:
There are lots of English web pages giving you instruction how to make the pillowcase dress. So you could copy the pattern from the Finnish site (http://www.kotivinkki.fi/Tee-itse/101-ideaa/Tekstiilit/Mekot-lakanoista/) and look the instructions eg. from here: http://www.everythingsewing.net/pillowcase_dress_how_to.htm. Or if this site is not good for you, please google "pillowcase dress pattern" and you will get more options. Couple of hints for the Finnish pattern - the first one is for a child (picture attached in this email) and measures are in centimetres. And you need to cut those armholes (3x15 cm curved line) off.
