Easter Dresses

I know, this is extremely early to be talking about Easter dresses - but since I found cute fabric and had time in CO - I made them one snowy afternoon!

A long time ago, I bookmarked this pattern and have been anxious to use it! After finding cute fabric at Hobby Lobby - I was ready to go!

Those are so adorable! You are so talented. The material is really cute...so springy! Are you going to make matching hats or purses.....a patchwork purse would that matches the front would be really cute!

Someone mentioned you in an email so I decided to pop over and say hi! Your Dress turned out beautifully! I need to check out my Hobby Lobby, I love that green dot! I had some a while back but I have used every last scrap of it, and the shop where I got it stopped selling fabric. Good work mama :) Have a nice day!

OMgoodness! What an adorable dress. Reminds me of Matilda Jane styles. If you've never heard of MJ, definitely check it out...if only for the patterns and styles of clothing.

the photographer in me soooo wants to photograph your littles in their new dresses too.

Gosh, I want the dress in an adult size. Super cute. Way to spend a snowy afternoon for sure.

I love it! The fabric is perfect for an Easter dress. One of my goals this year is to teach myself how to sew. Seeing that little dress has inspired me to get busy learning!

Monica,
What an adorable dress! The colors are so springy and very Easter-y! You did a fabulous job - your girls will be the envy of everyone, including myself. Do you think you could make me an adult version? :)

Cute dresses -- and I'm sure they will be even cuter on the little ladies! :) Love, Mom

Monica, that is such a sweet dress. When we were growing up, my mother always made our Easter dresses. My sisters and I were such girly girls that we would make my mother go to Goodwill and find a vintage pattern for a fifties dress. We loved dresses that required petticoats. My mother still has most of our Easter dresses and some have gone down the line of our cousins and their children.

Great job!
Deanna :)

Very sweet dress, love the fabric choices!

How very dear. And amazing to hear that you were able to sew 2 dresses in 1 afternoon. The ability to sew is such a gift.
