In my defense, I’ve been working behind the scenes (pattern testing and quite a handful of Summer sewing already completed) and I still missed posting here.
As promised, I’m back to show you this year Easter dress.
So, and even my husband and kids succeed in taking me to the mountains during our Easter break (it was snowing and, to be honest I was hoping for some warm weather), I convinced them that a new Easter dress was “necessary”.
I’ve sew this pattern so many times before, that I don’t need to follow the instructions anymore (I sincerely lost track of the number of dresses/tunics I’ve made from it). I always love the outcome.
For this version, I followed the original pattern almost to the letter but made it sleeveless, because this way she will be able to wear it all-year (add a blouse when the weather is cold, and wear it sleeveless during warmer summer days).
I had a fab paisley print in my stash but as there wasn’t enough so I used a matching cream linen for the ties.
Please excuse the poor indoor pictures (it was already dark when the dress was completed).
I was not sure if my girl would be willing to wear the dress outside (because of the snow) and I sure didn’t want her to catch a cold.
Luckily, my husband found an amazing spot at the bottom of the mountain that was snow-free and we did managed to get some action pictures
Oddly, my girl wanted to wear the dress outside and didn’t complained a bit
She was genuinely having fun (it was a bit cold. She put her winter coat and tights+boots as soon as these pictures were taken).
Here’s a better detail of the fabric color – it’s not pink, it’s coral with bits of cream. I think it’s quite lovely (I got it from here).
I can’t believe this is a size 8 already! (of course, there’s quite a bit of growing room and I made the skirt shorter. I’ll let it down as she grows).
Thank you for reading.
