Dress no more!

I bought this dress (from DownEast Basics) a few months ago - and it really did not work on me. It tried tailoring it, hemming, tightening and nothing helped. So, it sat in my closet collecting dust. Then - knowing I would never wear it - I decided to change it into a pillow... and presto, new pillow! I didn't take any closeups because honestly I am no pro at the sewing machine, but if you don't look closely it looks pretty good!
Hopefully this will inspire some unused clothes into home decor projects! If you want to know how to do the pleat circle thing let me know, if I can do it, anyone can!
