For the first time ever, I actually finished the Easter dresses before Easter. Whoohoooo!
I went pretty traditional, using Shirley Temple as my inspiration. I loved her high-waisted full dresses.
For the fabric, I chose a lightweight Swiss Dot for a nostalgic feel. I instantly go weak whenever I come across Swiss Dot and it instantly is added to the fabric stash.
For the pattern, I used New Look 6879 and made some minor alterations with the sash. I also wanted to make the dress a little fuller but ran out of netting and had to settle with what I had.
Baby Autumn's dress was a very simple A-line. I used this pattern to create it, but only used two rows of shirring. And the best part is that with the elastic threads, it will easily be worn as a tunic or top when she is older.
The flower is just gathered red twill ribbon that I sewed in a circle. Took literally three minutes.
Now we just need Easter to come!
