The latest craze which has taken over social media during the coronavirus lockdown is seeing people making dresses out of their pillows.

Amid the lockdown, some people are continuing to get changed out of their pyjamas into their everyday outfits. This helps them maintain a sense of normalcy.

On the other hand, some people are enjoying lazing around in the pyjamas and loungewear. Thus, allowing them to make the most of their time at home.

Understandably being confined indoors can lead to boredom and what better way to alleviate that dullness than to take part in a viral trend.

The beauty of this social media trend lies in the fact that no sewing and stitching is required to get your pillow dress photo-ready.
