I can’t say I still get to make pretty Easter dresses for my daughter any more. Boo. No more ruffles or lace. She bought a super cute dress last year at Kohl’s from their Cinderella line…she wore that again this year. I said it before, and I say it again, Easter SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED to be this close to St Patrick’s Day. I can only manage one. Ha.
Here is a photo of one of my all time favorite Easter dresses I made for my Mollys. The border print is a Patty Young fabric for Michael Miller and the colors were a fresh look for Easter. I just love the aqua and the deep raspberry together. I’m not sure my Molly has any teeth in these photos. I think she was in 3rd grade.
I believe the pattern was by the Scientific Seamstress. She does amazing work, and I’ve been a long time fan of hers. This was one of my first peter pan collars. I’m not sure I’ve improved much on those to this day. I also made a white underskirt trimmed in eyelet, to act as a petticoat. I remember it being too big in the waist and only being able to place it right for a few photos.
I hope you all have a wonderful, blessed Easter this year!!
