The Easter Dress and Colored Eggs

Just before Easter I realized that Timber didn't have an Easter dress. I had actually thought about it a few weeks ago and decided that one of her regular dresses would do just fine and that she didn't need anything new. Then I changed my mind. I sewed this dress up last Thursday.
The dress is from this pattern.


The dress went together quickly and was easy to sew. I have found that I really enjoy sewing clothes. It's not like quilting. While cutting fabric for quilting you don't even want to be 1/8" off otherwise your points don't line up and your blocks are off. While I'm not suggesting that cutting clothes is just a bunch of hap-hazard cutting, it doesn't seem to need to be as precise. It seems more stress free!







We had a great Easter. I hope that yours was enjoyed!

How sweet they are!! Timber looks very pleased with her new dress. I used to always make new dresses for my girls at Easter, but I don't make clothes anymore, just aprons and quilts, and maybe a doll dress now and then. I enjoyed sewing clothes up to the finishing, then I felt like they looked "handled".

I too realized my girl didn't have an easter dress until late in the game. I knew I would never finish a sewing project like that in time, so I ended up buying one for her. Next year, I'll plan ahead...

Oh my what delight! I really think that your models ought to be the focus of more photos. They are way too cute and as lovely as your projects are they do over shadow them.

Isn't it wonderful when our children and grandchildren are "a hard act to follow"?

Little Timber looks like she enjoys very much modeling all these pretty dresses her mama makes:)

You are truly inspiring me to buy a pattern and attempt to making a dress...
I just might have to pick one up this week.

Great Easter shots! Don't you just love this lovely time of year?!

What a beautiful dress - you did a wonderful job on it!
Your reason is precisely why quilting scares me & I haven't braved much of it. I'll have to learn to be more careful!
Great pictures - it looks so beautiful & green over there!
Have a wonderful day
Renata:)
