So today is Day 13 of my April Sewing Challenge. Technically I’m supposed to put what I make for sale in the Shop, but today I’m not. This little number belongs to Miss P–it’s her Easter Dress, complete with bunnies and other woodland creatures.
Once again, it’s a Tie Dye Diva Pattern–I’m on a serious roll here! It’s the Perfect Party Dress, and the name does not disappoint!
This is a classic, timeless dress for a little girl: sleeveless bodice, buttons up the back, a sash, and a skirt made for twirling. I love it and so does my Little Missy!
I love the buttons–makes for a really clean and tidy look. The pattern doesn’t have the contrast band on the bottom. I added it for an extra pop of colour. There are a lot of options with this dress including a ruffle bottom and a ruffled bib for the bodice.
The fabric is a most beautiful cotton poplin(?) from Japan. I’ve been hoarding it (of course) for several years because I luuurrve it so!
You know it’s a hit when she wants to boogie down during the photo shoot 🙂
And there it is for today–perhaps for the week… I’m not sure if I’ll take the Holiday or see if I can whip something up tomorrow, we’ll see. If I don’t happen to pop in tomorrow, I hope you have a wonderful Easter Weekend!
P.S. I’ve got a Coupon Code on my Facebook Page right now but for a limited time only. Check it out here 🙂
Okay, it’s getting down to the wire on Day 3 but here it is, my submission for my April Sewing Challenge of listing one new item in my Etsy Shop for every weekday this month! And today I’ve got not one, but two dresses to list–hooray for me!
First up is a gorgeous little tuxedo shift dress that just screams Spring–I’m ignoring the fact that it snowed again last night grrrr…
Fully reversible, this little baby is a size 3/4T. I used a pattern by Seamingly Smitten, one I’ve used A LOT! It’s so versatile and is really simple and easy to customize. Love it! The beautiful fabric is an Amy Butler design that I’ve been hoarding for about 2 years.
So easy to wear, it just pops over the head with no need for closures of any kind. I love not having to sew button holes and insert zippers whenever possible!
This is what the reverse looks like–a coordinating polkadot fabric with a cute little pocket 🙂
Up next is the size 1/2T. It is exactly the same except for the buttons.
Okay, Day 3 is officially in the bag! See you tomorrow! Oh, but before I go, tomorrow is the last day to enter my Facebook Giveaway. Check it out! xo, Heather
