Easter Dress

Since Easter is so late this year, and it was so beautiful last year, I forgot I lived in Canada for a moment and made my daughter a sundress.  Brilliant.  We have had the odd snowflake today.  I guess she'll need to wear it with tights and a sweater.

It's an A-line dress, similar to a pillowcase dress but slimmer. My daughter is tiny so too much material is overwhelming on her. I drafted my own pattern for it (!!!) based on my her measurements and a few of her dresses. It's about a size 2.  I love the pop of colour the red bias tape adds to the dress.

I love this fabric's bold pattern!

The fabric was thrifted, 100% cotton.  I wish I knew more about it.  My husband and I have been discussing the consequences of posting pictures of our kids on this blog.  I think we have agreed I will also start posting pictures of people instead of just objects, so there may be an action shot of the dress on my daughter later on this weekend.  Do you post pictures of your children on your blog?

I'll leave you with a few shots of my Easter Lily.  It is gorgeous right now and more flowers are opening daily.
Happy Easter!
Thanks for reading.

    Thanks Josee! I can't wait for spring weather!

  3. Love the dress! Yes, I post pictures of my daughter on my blog. Tons. I just refuse to let the crazies dictate how I live my life.


I would love to hear from you. Thanks for your comments.
