My Poor Easter Dress

So I was uninspired to make my Easter dress this year, so I procrastinated (who me? Nooooo) and didn't get started till Saturday afternoon. I used my now TNT pattern that I used for the Birthday and Purple dress, and whipped this up in about 3 hours.

The only picture I have.

So I get up early Easter morning so excited to put on my new pretty dress! I drive to church and park the car and just as I am walking in the door I feel a cold breeze on my back. So I feel back there, yup my zipper is popped. So I throw on my jacket quickly and hustle to the bathroom. I remove my dress and take a look at the zipper, I notice its off track, I think Okay thats an easy fix. I fix it and put the dress back on. As I am walking up to my sunday school class I feel that breeze again. And I give up. As soon as I sit down I text my husband to bring me a new dress. And that is the saga of my Easter Dress.

So its been a while......oops!

Well I kinda forgot about this itty bitty blog while I was slaving away at work. But that's all over now and I am free to start working on all the projects that I put on the back burner.

To start off I made a few things during my prolonged radio silence.

1st up My Birthday Dress!

Here is the inspiration for the dress, I am not sure where I found the picture but its probably Mod Cloth.

This is the finished project! It is the same pattern as my Purple Dress but I lengthened the bodice and instead of darts I did soft gathers in the front. I made the shoulder seams deeper and that solved the problem I had with the other but I think I still need to take a pinch out of the front bodice to prevent gaping.

This is the dress that I made for my daughter at her request for World Reading Day aka Dr. Suess' Birthday. Emily wanted to be Cindy Lou Who. And the dress had to be 'soft pink' I added an embroidered apron.

Well that's all for now......
