Successful sewing: Pillowcase Dresses

I have been winning the battle with my sewing machine today. I made 3 pillowcase dresses and my sewing skills and techniques got better with each one.

Dress #1: Made with some scrap material I had.

Once this one was successful, I hit the fabric stores with the girls.

Dress #2: Miss L's fabric choice, Strawberry Shortcake.

and my favorite

Dress #3: The best one so far. I did this one so that it ties in the back instead of on the shoulders. I think this will be easier to put on a wiggly toddler.

So what do you think? Do you think that these would be a good item at Once Upon A Dream?
I really hope my sewing machine continues to like me tomorrow.
