Step 1. Take your measurements. If the recipient of the pillowcase dress has hips or desires a roomier fit, add 1/2″ to your final waist measurement. If the recipient of the pillowcase dress has no hips (for instance, toddlers tend to be shaped just like straight little noodles) or desires a snugger fit, subtract 1/2″ from your final waist measurement. This number is the length of 3/4″ elastic that you’ll later need for your waistband.
Make the measurement for the skirt’s length from the point on your waist or hips where you’d like the skirt’s waist to sit to the point where you’d like the skirt’s bottom hem to reach. Add 1″ to this measurement.
