We've got a bit of sunshine to usher in Easter and I'm sewing, sewing... Have to leave time for dyeing eggs though so it's not a full time effort.
As you can see I thought I would go ahead and attempt to make the girls Easter dresses despite the very late start. I've got one finished, for Scarlett, and Audrey's about half way there. Not sure I'm going to get there for little Tess. Lucky for her she has a lot (a lot) of hand me down dresses!
I've had this particular design on my brain for a while. It could be a pinafore, or worn on it's own. It's a bit like this jumper I made in cotton velveteen for Scarlett last Fall, but the shape is closer to some of my favorite dresses--these Pretty Posie Dresses I made Audrey and Scarlett a few years ago. The sleeves are more full, almost an angel sleeve, but most importantly, they are lined! This time with a luxurious Liberty Tawna Lawn Becci print, which also lines the yoke. I used the print on the covered buttons in the back too. I love it with this aqua cotton velveteen (purchased at the Online Fabric Store, and sadly out of stock--wish they would get in more velveteens!).
I haven't had time to try this on Scarlett so I hope it looks like I imagined. I may need to make another one and tweak. Thinking about a pattern for this dress with a couple options. No time for a dress rehearsal I'm afraid...
I hope you are having a beautiful weekend!
