The fact that this year Easter dress had been picked since late-December, didn’t stop me from considering every new dress pattern as a potential candidate.
Obviously the reason why I need so many Easter dresses is closely related to yet another intriguing fact of life: I can not sew a dress for my girl that is kept in the closet for that long. She actually takes every opportunity to wear a new dress. And, true to be told, I don’t mind a bit …
There’s never such thing as too many dresses (at least, for the moment …).
If you’re looking for a pattern that includes a vast array of sizes, this one will certainly fit your bill: it runs from newborn to 12 years. Plus, the actual pattern is intended to the beginner sewer: it has no zippers and no buttonholes (the smaller sizes have a button loop in the back for easy dressing). What more could you ask for, right?
One of my favorite features is the collar detail – so sweet – allowing a peek-a-boo of the lining fabric. For this version I used a floral print in muted colors (love it!) and plaid seersucker in aqua for the lining. I am absolutely in love with this color combo – it worked so well 🙂
And if you still need a bit of guidance, there’s also a video tutorial to demonstrate how to do the bodice construction.
Although the dress skirt is gathered at the waist, the back skirt is gently fitted by the means of an elastic casing.
I think this dress if perfect for Easter, and being just a couple of days away, it might actually be the one my girl will be wearing.
Or maybe not (I’ll keep you posted …) 😉
