Easter is right around the corner! I made my daughter's Easter dress last week. I went with a pretty simple little seersucker dress, made with the same fabric I used for her romper and A's shorts for our trip to the beach back in August. I still have tons of this fabric left so there will be more seersucker dresses in her future! I considered using some to make my son a matching jacket, but I knew my husband wouldn't like it, so I bought him an outfit instead.
I made the pattern for the bodice using one of her shirts, then I just added a gathered skirt. I wanted the skirt to be pretty full so I cut a strip of fabric that was about 4 times the width of the bodice to make the skirt.
I debated between a navy blue sash or this pink one, but I figured pink was better for Easter, plus I had pink buttons to match it for the back.
I haven't been sewing many dresses for lately because she is not a big fan of them right now. She is crawling and always on the move, the dresses just get in the way, but they look so cute!
I am trying to decide between a bonnet or a bow to match. I am leaning towards a bonnet if I can find the time to make one this week.
