This was my easter creation for Aurora. I guess you can ignore all my comments about not sewing clothes for the kids much.
I really love this dress, particularly because I could use lots of my favorites from my stash.
She had quite a few compliments on it, and it's funny because she's come to expect that. She told me that people had better make a fuss about how pretty her dress is.
I created my own pattern for this dress. The inspiration is this dress from Chasing Fireflies. As you can see it's not really the same style, just shares the ruffled back. By the way...I love the kids clothes at Chasing Fireflies, but they're SO expensive.
I'm wondering if this is something others would like to buy a pattern for. It's not the easiest dress ever. The actual sewing level isn't that high, but it's time consuming making all those ruffles. I already have some modifications in mind, but I wondered if it was too intimidating for anyone to want to buy.
You're my market research, so speak up if you're interested...
I didn't make an outfit for Theo, but of course, he looked darling.
Here's the whole happy family:
So, I'm wondering....didn't it used to be warm for Easter? I have all these pictures of me outside in short sleeves and I know my dad would have made me suffer through the cold like I did to my kids, but I really don't remember that. I should probably just make my kids do a photo shoot like 2 weeks after Easter on a nice day.
Oh, and I ordered these awesome bunny cookies from cakebox cookies and they really rocked. I mean so delicious, and I'm really picky. I wanted to test them out as a potential source for party favors and I will definitely order again.
