We had such a fun Easter. It felt like the day went on for years...oh wait, maybe that is because my 7 year old was so excited for the day, he was up 8 times throughout the night asking if it was "time" yet! No really, we had such a great day. As always, it was so nice going to church and remembering the true meaning of Easter and of course, I ALWAYS love Sundays because I am with my family ALL day long!
I didn't know if I would get all the sewing done I wanted to for the day (because Spring Break ended up being last week), but it all came together and I LOVE how it all turned out!
For the dress, I used a few patterns combined (and adjusted!) from THIS book. It came together fairly easily and loved mixing my fabrics up to get just what I wanted. I ended up adding THIS belt to the dress to give it just a little extra color..and it looked amazing!
And of course, she loved it..and didn't want to take it off when we got home. She really did look so sweet!
My boys wear regular ties to church every week, so I was a bit surprised when they BOTH requested a bow tie for Easter! Pulling two of these together took less than 30 minutes..so I'm going to whip up a few more to give them a few more choices!
They certainly looked mighty handsome!
How was your Easter? Did you get all your projects done that you wanted to?
Thanks for stopping by today. I'm pulling together some Mother's Day ideas..excited to show you a few things! Anything fun you are working on?
