Sewing: Easter Dresses 2013



Happy (belated) Easter! It's amazing to me how each day matters in Spring. One day greener. A few more leaves on the bare branches. Bulb shoots multiplying. Thank goodness. We need those signs, don't we?




The weather switches between warm and cool, cloudy and crazy bright. We have to take advantage of the clear blue days when they come.





I hope Spring is treating you well. Reminding of you of all that's good and beautiful.


I need to appreciate more the everyday joys.


Such as these funny girls. So difficult to get a good photo of all three. (And never mind about the overdue haircuts.)



But if I shoot enough I get a few, even if they aren't exactly what I had in mind. They're probably better than the image I had in my head anyway.



And the best thing is, as I'm reviewing them all I remember that these are the faces I get to look at everyday, in real life. And these are the little people I get to take care of, in small ways and really important ways. And occasionally I also get to make something for them. And I have a lot of fun with that.



I love the tradition of new Easter dresses. I shared detail's about Scarlett's square yoked dress here, and Audrey's double-breasted dress here. And for Tess I decided on a velvet tulip skirt and a Ruffled Bateau Neck Top (same pattern design as this one). I'll have to share more about her outfit later.

Seriously could these girls be any cuter? They are sweet and adorable and I know you love being their Mom, it shows in every word you write.

Your creations are impeccable, and simply beautiful...of course, not as beautiful as your girls! Why aren't they modeling Ralph Lauren childrens wear or Gap?! Your style is on par! Thanks. c

Pretty dresses and beautiful girls. I love it when you can capture those small moments with kids, even when it's not exactly what you have in mind. Then those little personalities are captured forever :)

The frock reminds me of the colonial times.

These dresses are so beautiful… I was looking at how to crochet but wondered off to this page. Adorable. I make some stuff for my son, but it's just not the same as a good, frilly frock!
