Right I have decided I need a hobby have bought a sewing machine and have decided I will make a pillowcase dress for one of the DD's.
Silly question but can I just buy cotton or is there a certain type for dresses ??

Sorry for my lack of basic knowledge I havent done anything like this since school.

you'd be best to go to a shop and get a feel of the fabric before you start buying online. some cotton will be very thick, upholstery type material.
do you have a fabric shop near you?

Do you mean thread. Cotton is good for cotton fabrics. You can also get polycotton and polyester thread. Polycotton good allroundrer for man made fabrics.
