I’ve given up on the nice pictures of the girls modeling their dresses together…at least in the same frame. Thank goodness for photo editing…anywho! Here are the girls’ Easter dresses.
Although she is wriggly as can be…these two shots were the only ones that even turned out semi-in focus.
So I’ll show ya the dress hanging up, since it’s probably easier to see the details while it’s sitting still.
ok…..SIT dress….Stay!…good dress.
I basically knocked off Oliver and S’s Playdate dress-love the pattern but it was out of print! I probably wouldn’t have bought it anyhow, I’m a little cheap like that. lol. So I drafted my own copy cat pattern from a dress Charlotte already had in her closet and worked it out. It was pretty simple and I sewed it up in a few hours.
My favorite details are the yoke (?), with the tiny lavender buttons I’ve been
hoarding saving. and the little bit of gathering detail on the sleeves. Also the pleat underneath the yoke. Remember my love affair? Told ya we were in deep together, me and pleats.
Back to the buttons-they have a little ring of white around the edge. I LOVE THEM. They may start some friction with me and pleats. We’ll see. They did have the audacity to be sewed on a little crooked, so that may mar our relationship a tad.
