All three girls in their Easter dresses! I was so happy to have them finished for them to wear Sunday, even if a week late. They are still "Easter" dresses to me. White tights, white shoes, and all.
As you may have gathered from Tess's Easter Dress, I have a bit of a daisy thing going on this Easter. Daisies in yellow, white and blue--periwinkle to be specific. I haven't done much sewing with blue until this Spring it seems (these skirts for instance) and I love it! Blue and white was my mother's favorite combination, and not just for clothing, and I can see why. It's so crisp and fresh and pretty.
I decided to add a couple more daisies to Tess's dress with the appliques on the front. They look a bit like oversized buttons, which would be cute too. I felt she needed a something more after making her older sisters' dresses, which have more interest. But of course Tess holds her own.
Audrey's and Scarlett's dresses are a new pattern: the Ruffled Chemise for Girls. It's a reprise of the Ruffled Chemise for Babies from last Easter. I've been wanting to make it in larger sizes for some time now. But as it seems to go with me, a lot of ideas and not as much time to implement them all so this pattern isn't quite ready. Really soon though... Same for the Angel Sleeve Dress. (UPDATE: patterns are ready! Click on the links in this paragraph.)
There are just a few things complicating matters. Three to be exact! Sometimes I think, "three?!" I never thought I'd be so lucky!
