The dress is made of brown rayon challis. I wear it as a dress in warm weather and a jumper in cooler weather. The pattern used to make the dress/jumper New Look 6514. I embroidered the bodice pieces before making the dress.
I did not use a pattern for the pillow. I put the designs together into a 200×280 hoop (8×11 inches). Make two. Sew the two together side to side. Add light weight fabric to the two ends. right sides together sew it into a cylinder.
I inserted a pillow form from JoAnn, then tied the light weight fabric ends with rubber bands, and tied on ribbons to cover the rubber bands.
If you do not have a hoop large enough, embroider the parts needed, cut each part out leaving a 1/2″ seam allowance, and stitch them together into the pillow using 1/2″ seam allowance.
