Easter dresses

I've missed out on posting a lot of fun stuff on here, but I wanted to at least make a point to post the dresses I made for the girls to wear on Easter Sunday. I actually went to JoAnn fabric store and BOUGHT brand new fabric for these. I intended to also buy patterns, thinking perhaps I could learn something if I tried to follow a pattern. However, patterns that involve anything complex are ridiculously expensive, and I just couldn't do it. So, after perusing my favorite blogs and googling everything I could think of, I made these dresses, using several brand new techniques...and, hey, I did learn a few things (or a LOT) by the end!

tutorials that inspired me:


  1. Those are ADORABLE...and I'm sure they were so special to your little ones--or at least will be one day!

    I expressed interest in learning to sew the other day and Neil laughed out loud. I am not at all crafty, but I want to be so BAD...I admire you in so many ways, friend...I'll just add this to my list :-)

  2. those were/are adorable on Easter. i think you should make yourself a "sassy little bubble skirt" too! :)

  3. Oh, I love them! So cute and the colors -- so sweet. Great job and wasn't it fun and exciting to see the finished product? And even more so when admired on such beautiful subjects?

    You'll be looking at fabric like you never have before...lol!

  4. Next year you will have to make a tie or vest to match :)
