Double Duty Day---And a way to Give Back

Pillow Case

I had come across this dress idea a few years ago 
and was glad to find it again to add it to a DDD post. 
What a cute simple little dress or top, and even better,  a chance to be able to give back a little.

Who thinks of these ideas? To turn an item we use everyday into a sweet little dress ....
and there are so many other ideas too, but first the dress. 

 Here are some of the versions and patterns I found when I Googled:
