Easter Dress

This year like the past 3 years I have sewn my own Easter Dress. Each year is different and I usually find some kind of fabric that yells at me that it would be the perfect dress for me to have Easter morning. Well I was going to wear Martha this year. But my lovely husband took me to the opening of JoAnn's here in my town and I fell in love with this blue with white polka dot seersucker. And then when I got home I found the best pattern to make it with, they just screamed to be together.

View B is the one I fell in love with. Isn't she so cheerful? Anyway here is the finished product:

I think the red belt, bow and shoes pulled this outfit together so well. It rained on Easter but I felt like it was a sunny day in this dress. How can you not feel sunny in a dress this cheery?

So I have finished my Easter Dress this year, but I am waiting to post about it until I have good pictures with my hair all done :)  But I have finished a simple sundress with 2 yards of fabric I picked up at Walmart the other night.

I am going to call this one my "Sunny Dress for a Rainy Day".  Easter Dress is coming and a a new dress i have yet to name.

So I have been a super slacker when it comes to keeping up with this blog! I had a big burst of sewing at the end of February, mostly hemming and getting ready for a trip stuff. But I did do a dress because my Great Grandmother Martha passed away. I used a pattern that she had given me when she went into the home.

Pretty huh? So I sewed it up to wear for her funeral I thought it would be a fitting tribute to her. I added a belt, but other than that this dress is sewn up with her pattern and her alterations. Its just a bonus that it fits me like a glove!

That's all for now. I will try to get my sewing groove back soon.
