Here are some more pretty Easter dresses to inspire your sewing as we get ready to leave March behind and head right into April and spring!! Soft pastels and bunnies are in season!
These dresses were made using the Sugar n Spice pattern. Find it in three sizes on Pixie Faire, Etsy, and You Can Make This. The Sugar n Spice and Everything Nice bundle gives you even more options to dress up your “dress”!
I used THIS TUTORIAL to make the plackets on the bodices before I attached it to the lining. For both dresses, I moved the fold line over 3/4th inch and added trim before I topstitched it down. Try ric rac, lace trim, or piping. Do not add anything to the bodice lining piece. I suggest that if your bodice with the placket seewn doesn’t match the lining exactly, simply trim it to fit. (The lining is the true bodice size.)
Find the Sugar n Spice pattern here. The pink ruffled trim is Strawberry Slush ruffle elastic trim from Stampin’ Up! It’s not attached to Emily’s waist, I just added it on top like a belt and couldn’t really decide which way I liked it better, flipped up or down. It was the perfect color!!

This bunny face print is just so much fun!! I wanted to bring out the black face accents, so I chose a black gingham to accent it. I love black and white with pops of color!
I had a few different fat quarters that a friend picked up as a surprise for me at Walmart and it was fun to mix and match the prints. At less than $4 for a yard of fabric, you can’t beat the price tag! (See my Valentine dresses also from Walmart fat quarter packs HERE.)My girls are ready for Easter. Are yours?
